Why I love my job
By Andy Rooney

THE OTHER DAY, I started making a list of famous people I knew during World War II. I was prompted to do this because of the 67th anniversary of D-Day this week.
During the war, as a reporter for the Army newspaper, The Stars and Stripes, I often had occasion to interview Gen. Dwight Eisenhower. He was the first and one of the best famous people I ever knew. I was a private and Eisenhower was a four-star general, but it isn’t going too far to say we were friends. I called him “General” and “Sir,” but instead of “Private,” he called me “Andy.”
