    Andy Rooney - RIP

    Andy Rooney so dreaded the day he had to end his signature "60 Minutes" commentaries about life's large and small absurdities that he kept going until he was 92 years old.

    Even then, he said he wasn't retiring. Writers never retire. But his life after the end of "A Few Minutes With Andy Rooney" was short: He died Friday night, according to CBS, only a month after delivering his 1,097th and final televised commentary.

    Sad day. Loved him on 60 Minutes.

    It was sad watching his farewell on 60 Minutes. So sad that his retirement was brief but what a life.

    A true old-school journalist. Will be missed.
