A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney

Andy Rooney, dead at 92. The Complete and Total Loser liked him. Not for his observational powers or writing ability but because he is the last of his era to appear on a weekly, national news show of the reputation and reach of 60 Minutes. 
The Loser, with his own current loss (see any previous post of the last few weeks) hadn't known Rooney was ill. Now he can only see Rooney's death through his personal filter. 
Both Rooney and the Loser's father had a solid purpose in life; Rooney, his broadcast; the Loser's father, his wife's care. Both lost those purposes. Both are over 90. One is dead.
