Andy Rooney "genuinely worried" on 60 Minutes

Funnyman Andy Rooney had an unusually sober piece in yesterday's Six Minutes (U.S. CBS Network).

"For the first time" "I'm genuinely worried" about the future of this country, the future of his grandchildren. He fears we might have "lost something" important, and worries are current actions smack of the "arrogance" of "Greek and Roman" civilizations from "our history books" that have long since died.

Add Andy Rooney to the list of concerned voices about the current Administration's lack of commitment to the rule of law, a traditional American value.

No doubt millions will take note of the sudden loss of his sense of humor this week.
