RIP, and thank you, Mr. Rooney.
What a lovable, laughable journalist he was. Comments he made were inconsequential, but those everyday silly things mentioned were funny because they were true. How lucky he was to say what was on his mind in public and make a living as such, in that profession too. Thank You, Andy and we were lucky to have you as such. RIP. Jimmy

My favorite episode of his was when he made fun of how many "servings" of a particular food item were listed on the back of the package. For example, a small bag of chips said like 2 servings, he poored the bag of chips out on his desk and laughed that such a small amount was supposed to be 2 or so servings.
