Roughly Speaking: Punching up cocktails with brandy; making soup; gifting books

11/8/2011-Andy Rooney

Andy Rooney is my TV roll model, and he will be for the rest of my life. He joins the list of my other late, great roll models: Dr. Seuss, Sparky Schulz, Bill Mauldin, Doug Marlette, Jeff MacNelly, Tibor Gergely, H.A. Rey, Norman Rockwell, John Steinbeck, E. B. White, Ernest Hemingway, El Greco, Monet, Johnny Carson, Steve Allen, Hopalong Cassidy, Paul Newman, Mark Twain...OK, that's enough. I could go on forever just as they will. Fortunately, I have plenty more live roll models.
