A Familiar Refrain for Wallace: Tick, Tick, Tick...

I'm Student of The Game. These stories, and Andy Rooney, today, on The Death Pool. [Cue music]

Mike Wallace underwent triple-bypass heart surgery over the weekend. Wallace, 89, took his first steps yesterday, just two days after undergoing the procedure in Manhattan, reportedly at Lenox Hill Hospital.

"Mike is recovering nicely," a CBS News spokesman said yesterday. He quoted Wallace's doctors as describing the surgery as "a great success." It's unclear if the surgery was planned or if it was done immediately after a checkup revealed a problem.
It's too early to say for certain, but I'm sure we can expect to see Wallace back in action, lobbing softball questions at celebrities and politicians, very soon. [Cue music]
