Answer:-Rooney has occasionally been accused by critics of insensitive use of ethnic and racial labels. In a 2002 commentary, Rooney addressed the use of the term Negro this way:
“ Our thoughts about words change over the years. In 1968, I wrote a television show called Black History, Lost, Stolen or Strayed for Bill Cosby. I remember being uneasy with the word black because the acceptable word back then was Negro. Today, I wouldn't use Negro. It's a good, strong word, but now it sounds wrong to me.
Different ethnic groups of Americans have always had terrible nicknames for each other. I remember hearing them as a kid. You don't hear them much anymore because they always make the person using them sound like such ignorant jerks.

He also wrote a column in 1992 that it was "silly" for Native-Americans to complain about team names like the Redskins saying, "The real problem is, we took the country away from the Indians, they want it back and we're not going to give it to them. We feel guilty and we'll do what we can for them within reason, but they can't have their country back. Next question."
In a recent column for Tribune media services, he wrote, "I know all about Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, but today's baseball stars are all guys named Rodriguez to me." Rooney later commented, "Yeah, I probably shouldn't have said it, [but] it's a name that seems common in baseball now. I certainly didn't think of it in any derogatory sense."
Rooney has always denied that he is a racist. In the 1940s, he was arrested after sitting in the back of a segregated bus in protest. Also, in 2008, Rooney applauded the fact that "the citizens of this country, 80 percent of whom are white, freely chose to elect a black man as their leader simply because they thought he was the best choice." He said that makes him proud, and that it proves that the country has "come a long way - a good way."
- Question:-Regarding excessive human desire, is Andy Rooney really onto something here?
At the end of the Sixty Minutes program that aired on Sunday, April 18th, Andy Rooney spoke about excessive human desire http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7H3fZtXrt4.
Wasn't he onto something that merits further discussion?
Answer:-Wow. That was very good. Sounds like Clockwork Orange a little.
I doubt a pill could be created, though, but who knows.
Some excessive desire is not really that bad, like overeating or too much sex. They just hurt the individual involved. It's the making too much money part that ruins lives (that's why we're in the mess we're in now, of course). But if you say that, you'd get called the S-word. a Socialist.
- Question:-Do you agree with this Andy Rooney quote?
This isn't a project for school, or anything...I'm just curious.
Agree or disagree?
"The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong."
Providing examples is a plus.
Answer:-I would say that 'I' have a 90% probability of getting a 50-50 question RIGHT. That's me of course. Comes with maturity and comon scence
