    Unhappy Good Bye Johnny Carson

    79 years isn't enough for a man who gave us 30 years of laughs night after night.
    Late nights were never quite as funny and now the world is a little sadder.

    it's just sad. i remember my 'rents using the tonight show to mark my bedtime on weekends and me getting real quiet so they'd forget i was there so i could watch johnnie with them. as the years went on i remember watching with them and laughing at his 'floyd r turbo' and 'carnac the magnificent' not to mention all the animals from the san diego zoo.

    he was a funny funny man. i've missed him ever since he went off the air. it's just sad that talented men have to die but johnnie gave us all he had and it was pretty great.

    "And what's all this fuss about plutonium: How can something named after a Disney character be dangerous? So what if an atomic plant blows up? The people who say that, they are afraid to die. I'm not afraid to die because all my life I have lived by the Good Book, the American Legion magazine...They say atomic radiation can hurt your reproductive organs. My answer is, so can a hockey stick, but we don't stop building them...."

    I wish I got to really watch him when I was growing up.

    The long late nights of growing up in northern wisconsin were made entertaining by Johnny.

    Only 3 channels then, ABC and CBS had reruns, NBC had Johnny.

    Johnny was Bob Hope with better material.

    He will missed by friends and family, but he has been missed by all since he went off the air.

    One note:

    Peter Lasalle- the producer of The Tonight Show- said that Johnny hs been supplying jokes to David Letterman.

    I have missed Johnny since the day he went off the air. I got his VHS tapes of the best of Carson.

    To me noone is in his class.

    I love Conan O'Brien, but Johnny was clearly the best. RIP Johnny.
