Andy Rooney did'nt say it.

This site debunks the myth that attributes this circulating email to Andy Rooney Urban Legends Reference Pages: Andy Rooney on Big Cars
Though it sure sounds like something he would say.Whoever did write this piece makes a lot of sense .

I like to read about myself on the Internet.

I've found that it's pretty easy to write something that sounds like I said it. People can usually imagine hearing my wonderful voice saying it.

Ever notice how I have a distinctive way of phrasing my sentences? It's probably based on using the phrase "I think" a lot.

I don't think that just because something sounds like I said it, that people should believe that I actually said it.

And if you don't agree with what I said, that means I probably didn't say it. That's what I tell my wife, anyway.

Ah that makes sense.

This piece is extracted from an earlier missive that was originally titled "Yes, I am a bad american".
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
