60 Minutes commentator and resident TV old guy Andy Rooney has been with us for almost 100 years (I’m serious). His pointed commentary on all things pertaining to society, pop culture and news have been a welcome addition and are for the most part dead on. Take this little snippet from 60 Minutes for example where Rooney talks about his distaste for automotive gadgets. From the LCD screens to navigation units to being able to access the internet from your automobile, today’s new cars are packed so full of technology that it almost takes a college degree to figure out how to use everything. Rooney’s point of simply using a car to get from point A to point B is something that hits home for me and I agree with everything he says. I have two cars that are more than 40 years old and the beauty of both of them is their simplicity. By today’s standards they are archaic, but what they lack in technology they more than make up for in keeping me grounded. Rooney might be old but his views on some of our technological advancements is dead on.
