..a true legend of American culture passed away, Johnny Carson. Let´s all just think about his amazing charisma, just like Elvis he could spellbind an audience and did so for over 30 years. I was introduced to him via DVD´s and can say right away, there´ll never be another TV-personality with his skills and talents.

Thanks for the legacy, I miss you Johnny!
