TV Thursdays - Morley Safer and Modern Art

I grew up watching 60 Minutes on CBS (Channel 2 in New York). My parents would watch the show every Sunday night, and so I watched it with them. It is a show that has a style all its own -- just like The New York Times and The New Yorker . Mike Wallace, Morley Safer, "Gunga Dan" Rather, Andy Rooney, Harry Reasoner,  Point/Counterpoint -- I remember it all.
