A legend taken from us...

This week on June 23 Ed McMahon passed away. His days with Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show were a bit before my age but I do faintly recall his famous "Here'ssssssssssssssssssssssss Johnny!!" introduction at the start of each night. What makes McMahon so amazing is that he pretty much (imho) solidified the position of co-host. It's one thing to become famous as a host but it is quite another to become a legend as a second banana. That takes a lot of class.

Rest in Peace Ed
