After watching my Cowboys fall to the Beagles, I accidently caught the end of 60 Minutes. As a result, I got to hear Andy Rooney go on and on about what he would do "If I was rich."
Andy - You are RICH!!! When you got suspended in 1987 without pay, it was reported you were making $7,700 per week. Assuming you managed to get a raise in the past 20 years, one would expect you are making $500,000 to $1,000,000 per year in salary. Having lived in NYC for 20+ years, we can assume you own a multi-million dollar co-op on the UWS or UES.
More importantly, you continue to make a great salary well into your 80's. While most 88 year olds are trying to make do on a fixed income, you are collecting a six or seven figure income.
By any standard, you are rich. Don't pretend you aren't.
