Sleep Tight, Andy

Rooney starts out by referencing a study that suggests economy-borne stress keeps Americans awake at night. But instead of parsing the sleep stats, he decides to run down a series of anecdotes about his own snoozing prowess. Channeling Dr. Seuss, he says he can sleep in the night or in the day, on a bus or at a desk. He also suggests that humans need some sort of an alert that tells us when we need more sleep to charge our batteries or have had enough ... Sorry, we nodded off.

Best line: "I often fall asleep right here at this desk!"
