Farewell, Johnny

There’s a lot of things I’d like to say about Johnny Carson, but I stick to this one: in an age where nearly every Hollywood figure needs to spill his/her life story to Oprah, Johnny Carson was intensely private and felt no need to explain himself. He was a rare comic talent, a model for all, and he will be missed. (By the way, skip “The Tonight Show” tomorrow night and stick to Letterman, who idolized Carson and will likely have an emotional tribute).
