This is the kind of shit here that pisses me off. The man isn't even cold in the ground, and someone has to find something to dis him over.

It is not very Christian to celebrate someones death in order to denounce their life.

Whomever is "dissing" Johnny, it is certainly NOT kcvl.
She has posted two old articles that addressed his health issues.
What's your problem with THAT?

No one is "dissing" him. Get over yourself.

It was written in 2002 and reposted by Drudge. Some of you think that you can police the threads if there is something that you don't want to read, don't. The rest of us want to know more about him than just the Larry King love fest.

My dad died of emphysema so I don't wish that on anyone.

******

07/03/2004 Johnny Carson, The Man Who Retired From the 2002 Esquire article : "I think I left at the right time," he says now. "You've got to know when to get the hell off the stage, and the timing was right for me. The reason I really don't go back or do interviews is because I just let the work speak for itself." Inasmuch, I have come to know that he is far better than simply fine; he is supremely self-assured of his place in the firmament, secure about the lasting worth of that which he quit doing for television cameras and for his country. He is contented in a way wise humans can only aspire to be but rarely are. Always with a shrug and a whiff of final punctuation, he regularly repeats to friends and family three short words: "I did it." Nobody argues.

No problem telling the truth, actually I never found him to be very funny.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I was exposed to the TV and news all weekend. From the coverage, you would have thought Carson's death was the most important happening of the whole weekend (besides the blizzard). I am saddened by his death, but I don't think that the Second Coming would get as much attention.
