Wishing You an Andy Rooney Christmas

You know what I can't stand? People who say 'Happy Holidays'Times Union editor Rex Smith may have to make some tough calls on how to handle Christmas, but not so for Andy Rooney. There have been about a million pieces on this whole "Happy Holidays" vs. "Merry Christmas" thing, but if you ask me, Rooney sums it all up best in a column that ran yesterday. In case you don't read it, and by some chance run into Rooney up in Rensselaerville, don't wish him Happy Holidays. He might just haul off and smack you in the shin with his cane.
