OK, this just sucks. It’s bad enough Andy Rooney’s gone and we feel bad about it, but his college roommate died at a luncheon in his honor? Sigh. Hey, dude up above us making all the moves, mind just giving Andy a break for a couple of days? Thanks.
EDIT: Back from the dead! The Gods do listen to this blog!

Dear Andy Rooney: We miss you, even if we made fun of you a lot. :( You were an American treasure, even when your opinions were controversial, and it sucks that you died. Peace out, curmudgeonly icon.

Andy Rooney hospitalized for “serious complications”: We’ve made a lot of jokes at his expense in the past, but seriously, we hope he’s OK.

Andy Rooney interviewed by Ali G.

A good coda for the end of Andy Rooney’s curmudgeonly career, in which he offers to loan Ali G one of his 50 books on the English language.

I’m not retiring. Writers don’t retire, and I’ll always be a writer.
Andy Rooney • In his final “A few minutes with Andy Rooney” moment on “60 Minutes.” Nice to see he didn’t smooth off the edges even as he was sad about leaving his job.

Airing now? Andy Rooney’s final “60 Minutes” episode: “There have been many curmudgeons on television over its long history,” Morely Safer said, “but none has been so long-serving in that role as Mr. Rooney - the grandpa Moses of broadcasting. At age 92, perhaps Grandpa Methuselah would be more fitting.” The full clip is over here.

In honor of Andy Rooney’s pending retirement from being the full-time resident complainer on “60 Minutes,” our favorite clip from the curmudgeonly icon of complaining about things he doesn’t understand. In this case, eBooks. Rooney will reportedly make occasional appearances, which is the television way of saying, “we like you, but you’re too old.” (Larry King made a similar exit from CNN under this pretense last year.) Rooney is a youthful 92 years old.
