Good-bye Johnny

Johnny Carson died today.

I didn't become a fan until his last couple of years on the job. Mostly, I just watched his show because David Letterman was on afterwards, and I wanted to watch that.

I still tear up whenever I see the clip of Bette Midler singing to him, as his last guest.

He really was brilliantly funny, without going to the gutter for the laugh. He didn't put other people down in jokes.
