I hope that he was comfortable with his station in life.

It was a real shame to see 60 minutes transform into what it had become over the years.

That program and CBS news in general took on a real agenda during his later years, and he seemed to be a follower.

Happens a lot to people who just retire. Very sad.

A very good man. I always kind of looked at him as an older, less in-your-face version of George Carlin...
