Mickey Rooney, who spent nearly his entire life in show business, died today. He was 93.

Rooney had been in ill health for quite some time. We're told death was attributed to natural causes.

He was in the audience of television show I saw in the last month. Except for longing old, he looked OK.

Seems like he left an estate worth $18,000 to his stepson, according to today's Daily News.

I know someone who said he thought Mickey Rooney had already died, he also was thinking of Andy. Mickey Rooney was a stage name.

RIP Mickey.

That's funny but also somewhat tragic. Mickey Rooney played Andy Hardy, which I would guess is where the confusion started...
