Johnny Carson RIP

Johnny Carson has passed away at age 79.

I can still remember the warm summer evenings when I was allowed to stay up late enough to watch The Tonight Show. I loved his unassuming style and his dry wit. With a pause and a facial expression he could turn a bomb of a joke into magic. Maybe it is a Nebraska thing, but his style had a big influence on me, I will miss him. There will never be another like him.

If you didn't get Johnny, keep it to yourself, negative comments will be deleted with a vengeance.
