As you know, Conan O'Brien talks to "60  Minutes" this Sunday. There have been leaks, notably some to this morning's edition of the Times, and a few last night.

  Here are some fresh quotes.

  Bottom line: Co sounds kinda happy, without regrets (or too many) or much bitterness, to speak of. Interesting to see this Sunday if this is an erroneous impression...



I don't regret anything. I don’t regret one decision I made in that week
and a half period,” says the late night television comedian.   “I wish it
had ended differently. But, I'm fine. I do believe, and this might be my
Catholic upbringing or Irish magical thinking, but I think things happen
for a reason.  I really do.  And I think that this all happened for a
reason,” he tells Kroft.


Was He Screwed?


The biggest thing people come up and say to me in gas stations and
restaurants, I have so many people say this to me.  “Hey partner, you got
screwed.”  I don't-- and I always tell them, "No, I didn't.  I didn't get
screwed.  I'm-- I'm fine.  It just-- it didn't work out."  But I don't
want people thinking, you know, that I got screwed.  Because it just
didn't work out.


Resolved His Issues?


No, I have not resolved all my issues.  I am mostly very happy. I love
this tour, it's the most thrilling thing I've done in my career. And so
I'm in a really great place in a lot of ways.  But I'd be lying if I said
I don't-- have my moments of everything, you know, anger, disappointment
-- frustration and just confusion.
