Andy Rooney, Reporter

Last Sunday, I caught the tail end of 60 Minutes. It was strange, to say the least, to see Andy Rooney, whose job I've always coveted, out in the field reporting, far away from his iconic wooden desk. His producers sent him to Arizona, to "cover" the Superbowl, and the piece they assembled is a bizarre meditation on the Giants, the game, and what it's like for Andy Rooney to travel. (You get the feeling he doesn't leave New York often). Enjoy it. And when you're finished, compare it to this ad for Mike Gravel. A similar aesthetic, no?
