The End of an Era

Andy Rooney has announced his retirement from CBS' news magazine "60 Minutes."

Rooney, 92, joined CBS in 1949 and said in an interview in 2009 that he intends to stay on "60 Minutes" until he dies. Only now, in a more "sporadic" role.

A statement from CBS says Rooney will discuss this on Sunday's broadcast. Sunday will mark his 1,097th essay - a feature he started in 1978.

No word on a replacement, or if the segment will even continue.

Goodbye Mr. Peppermint

A part of Dallas television history was lost today as Jerry Haynes, known by many including myself as Mr. Peppermint, passed away from complications of Parkinson's disease at the age of 84.

Mr. Peppermint, and his sidekick "Muffin", will always be a part of my childhood. That show is the epitome of what television is missing today. Shows that not only entertained children, but carried a message.

"I want to remind you: Sometimes things don't go too well and you're not feeling a real good mood," Mr. Peppermint would say. "When you feel unhappy, nothing seems worthwhile. Just give yourself a peppermint grin, and you will wear a smile."

Thank you Mr. will be missed.

The Super Truck

I'm sure you've heard about NBA star Joe Johnson's massive truck. Well, it's a modified Ford F650 - "Super Truck" (like the one pictured)

Maybe it's a sign I'm getting older...but my first thought was...I bet that gets terrible gas mileage.
