Andy Rooney Rifles Through Your Purse

"It is my observation that people are carrying more stuff than they used to," Rooney says in this delightfully useless 60 Minutes segment about people who use tote bags. The veteran journalist then takes to the streets to ask what people have inside their purses and backpacks. "A wallet," one person says. "A bottle of water," says another. (And CBS pays money for this?) The most perceptive observation? "Backpacks are almost as common as pocketbooks. Some of them are attached to the back of the person carrying it."

Best line: "I should think women are getting stronger ... the bags they carry are certainly heavier."
