He said he probably hadn't said anything on "60 Minutes" that most of his viewers didn't already know or hadn't thought. "That's what a writer does," he said. "A writer's job is to tell the truth."

If only today's news-writers were so noble.

A great American for sure. He saw the best of, and the potential for the country but wasn't blinded enough by politics to not see the worst. He did not die a young unfulfilled man so celebrate his life. Thanks Andy!
