Johnny Carson

Johnny Carson died yesterday at the age of 79.  I remember growing up with my parents watching Johnny after the news on some nights.  It wasn’t that it was all the time, but a few nights a week.  Sometimes, usually on Friday’s, we were allowed to stay up and watch it too.  When Jay Leno took over it just wasn’t the same.  Johnny definately rates on the Cool Dead People list.  He made a lot of people laugh.  I recently heard something on the radio where Johnny had still be sending jokes to David Letterman….who he (supposedly) thought should have been his successor on the Tonight Show.
