I’ve watch Rooney on that show since the beginning and while I always enjoy his style, I like his column a bit better. Rooney is a great column writer and when I found out he was retiring from CBS, I immediately did a Google search to make sure his column was still going t be around.
That search didn’t make me feel better. “Classic Rooney” columns now run where new ones used to be. What? Even more change?
In some of my CityBeat columns, I’ve been compared to Rooney and while many of those comments were meant to insult me, I kind of like the comparison even knowing I can’t come close to him as a writer.
And as a writer, I also publish books. Rooney and I agree on this e-book stuff. Here, take a look.
Rooney’s last appearance on “60 Minutes” will be this coming Sunday. I’ll be watching, damning this change the whole time.
