As Americans, we have lost one of our great commentators, newscasters, and our no holds barred conversationalist… Andy Rooney.

You will remember Andy as the wrap-up, tongue in cheek guy at the end of the Celebrated CBS Show “60 Minutes.” Andy was to me…the 21st Century version of “Will Rogers” and much, much, more.

To say that he will be missed is a trivial understatement.

Andy Rooney was 92. The Nite Ranter will always love & greatly admire …Andy Rooney!

    Andy will definitely be missed. He hit on the topics that were actually quite close to what the Nite Ranter hits on. Some politics, some not, some just miscellaneous everyday things… He knew how to get to the bottom of things. I will miss him.

      CBS did a fine tribute to Andy. They stated that there are no plans to replace him.

      As if they could!

      Andy Rooney is not replaceable and that may well be his most important contribution…other than his immense ability to question even the most seemingly common of things and really make us think about our lives and the world in which we live.

      Now that’s what The Nite Ranter calls a legacy.

      TNR 🙁
