And You Thought Your New Year's Plans Suck
Last night's episode of 60 Minutes featured warnings about the California water shortage, Lara Logan's visit to Afghanistan, and flying squirrel people; but it was Andy Rooney's insights into the grind of existence that spoke the loudest. Instead of closing off the program with a rant about viewer mail, crowded shopping malls or the general concept of extreme wealth, the curmudgeon extraordinaire directed his grumpiness at New Year's Eve. Eschewing the typical excitement for a new calendar year full of opportunities, Rooney railed against the holiday and vowed to spend the night alone, drowning his misery in a tub of coffee ice cream. The grim (or comfortingly validating) video after the jump.
