Did he come to Christ at the end?
Or remain a bitter communist?

This is what happens if you let yourself get too old.

Old people (over 85) die when:

1. They retire after working all their lives
2. Their spouses die

Statistically for some reason, if you keep working into your 80s, you will die very quickly after you retire. This is true whether you choose to retire at 85 or 95....

RIP Rooney. I was not your fan but vaya con Dios. I wish you a blessed Eternal life.

I am very sorry. I am sorry for his family and friends. I remember a 60 Minutes where he took issue with the Ten Commandments. I hope that in the interveening years he changed his mind and heart.

Have been noticing the same thing.

Best advice - don’t retire until you have other options - i.e. productive hobbies and interests.

I just texted the same message to my brother. Great minds.

Now we won't get to hear a few minutes with Andy Rooney on this subject.

"You ever notice how you die? It seems like everyone gets around to it eventually, but why is that? Nobody LIKES to die, so how come we don't figure out a way not to do that? It seems silly to keep doing it even when we've seen the results. You get put in the ground. I don't like the ground, it's dirty...."

etc...

Wow, just a couple of weeks ago he did a segment on 60 minutes, about his retirement. Sorry to hear of his passing. Some of his rants were pretty good.

God Bless his family and he did entertain alot of Americans. But he was a bitter old man.

The Main Street Media will want to treat him like a Head of State. That will be a sad site.

Was Rooney a lefty Marxist?
I wouldn’t know.
I probably last saw him on TV maybe 25 years ago.

Back in those days, Commies were an unknown quantity.
Today, they seem to be the standard in broadcast and
celebrity status.

Best to remember my mother’s sage advice:

Fox ‘n Friends are covering his passing as though he worked at Faux.

Just fill out the proper paperwork and leave the check with my secretary. :D

"And what about that 'autopsy'? It sounds kind of fun, but most people only go through it once. It's seems like the name you'd call a French automobile to me, say, 'I'd like that 2011 Ford Autopsy, don't you have it in black?' I prefer black for a car. Dirt shows too much on a white car, and I don't want to have to wash it on the weekends. That's when I catch up on my soaps. Where was I...?"

IIRC, he was still working not too long ago. But then, I can’t recall the last time I watched Setunim Ytxis.

I guess he is boring Saint Peter now with his:

“Why are they “pearly” gates? Wouldn't just plain wood or wrought iron gates do just as well? I mean,it's not like anyone even notices them what with wondering whether they will be going up or down and not so much about going in or out...”

(God): "ENOUGH!!!"

I liked the Joe Piscopo version better.

"Did you ever notice that there are no Nazis named 'Steve'?"

"And what kind of name is Morley? Is that the opposite of Leslie?"

He was an avowed atheist to the end. Never found him very funny or amusing. But R.I.P. anyway.

“Do you ever notice how some people just can’t handle retirement? I do. It seems like one minute they’re getting a gold watch and saying their goodbyes and the next minute they just drop dead. It’s almost like the stress of having nothing to do all day was just too much for them...”

Morley /Leslie! That is the most classic one. Every time I heard Morley, I thought to myself “opposite of Leslie” but forgot where it came from

Because he was a WWII vet I gave him a little slack. Otherwise he was just another liberal geezer at most.
