Time - "(NEW YORK) — CBS says commentator Andy Rooney will make his final weekly "60 Minutes" appearance on this Sunday's edition. The 92-year-old Rooney will announce his departure in his regular essay at the end of the program, where he has been featured since 1978.
This, his 1,097th original essay for the program, will be preceded by a segment in which Rooney looks back on his career with "60 Minutes" correspondent Morley Safer, CBS said Tuesday.

P.S. - "Alfy Gordon's mother wouldn't let Alfy have fireworks" what a bitch Alfy's mother was! When was the last time you met a guy with the name Alfy? Never that's why, matter fact I never even thought of the never Alfy if it wasn't for Andy Rooney and his firework story. Guarantee you'll never hear a better firework story than the one you just heard about from, Andy Rooney. True story.
