Too old for PC


Andy Rooney is an ancient (90 years old) humourist and political commentator who’s too old to be muffled by the PC Thought Police. Here’s what he said on the "60 Minutes" show a few months back:

"I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America.
.
Try to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss White America; and see what happens...Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door."
.
Pity the likes of Andy are a dying breed.
