I came across this YouTube clip the other day—the one at the top of this post. The clip was made by Max Liberatori. I think he’s a filmmaker. It hasn’t been posted long, was put up in August of this year.
There’s Andy Rooney in his office reading some stories he wrote for the Stars and Stripes newspaper during World War II. He’s reading from the original newspapers and you can tell he’s getting a big kick out of it. Its fun and touching to watch.
The thing that bugs me is at the time I’m writing this; the video only has 34 views on YouTube. That’s almost nothing.
Does the world remember Andy Rooney? He died in November of 2011. I mean it hasn’t been that long.
Does the world remember him being on 60 Minutes? I do. I always liked him on that show, but I always liked him better as a column writer—one of the best ever as far as I’m concerned.
Really? Only 34 views? I realize the world doesn’t remember very much, but in this case, not only does it bug me, it makes me sad.
