Andy Rooney's College Roommate (Almost) Drops Dead at His Memorial Service

Andy Rooney's college roommate, Bob Ruthman, died of a heart attack today while attending the 60 Minutes staple's memorial luncheon at the Century Club in Manhattan. They lived together at Colgate University in the '40s. When you have a bunch of 90 year-olds hanging out together, this is probably a statistical inevitability. And with that, the last two remaining members of the Colgate Class of '43 went out in style.

Update: Looks like TMZ got the story wrong and he didn't die at the memorial he was revived and is now in intensive care. The Class of '43 is not going out like that!
