Andy Rooney Update

Andy Rooney, who announced his retirement from his regular commentator role on "60 Minutes"last month, is ailing following surgery, CBS said Tuesday.
"Andy Rooney underwent minor surgery last week and suffered serious complications," CBS News wrote in a statement. "For that reason, he remains in the hospital, but his condition is stable."
No other details were disclosed.
At his retirement, Rooney was 92, qualifying him as among the oldest persons still working on-air in television. (NBC's Don Pardo still does some announcing for "Saturday Night Live" at age 93.)
Rooney joined "60 Minutes" in 1978.
