The Estate of Andy Rooney

Growing up Sunday evenings meant a family dinner and the TV tuned to 60 Minutes.  I am probably one of a small number of 30 somethings that grew up watching Andy Rooney weekly on the TV.  Last November he passed away, at the age of 92.  According to this blog he left behind an estate worth $9 million, to be split equally between his four children.  Unlike many famous Americans, Andy Rooney was frugal at heart -- according to the article he didn't start taking cabs until he was 90!  And he "wasn't into fancy estate planning" either.

Thanks Andy for one last, inspiring story!
