Long time Tonight Show host Johnny Carson died this morning. He was 79.

This sucks. Many Nebraskans felt a kind of bond with JC. While he was born in IA he grew up in Norfolk, NE which is only about an hour drive from here. I remember when I was a kid JC was proof that a small town 'hick' like me had a chance to be something wonderful.

He will be sorely missed.
