- Rooney gets testy when asked for his autograph ("What kind of an idiot wants my name?" he snapped).
- Could you write him a letter, instead? Well ... he said he was unlikely to answer "an idiot who has the bad sense to write me a letter."
Rooney, 92, is a long-time Rowayton resident.
The "60 Minutes" website still has Rooney's television commentaries available on a Web page.
