Johnny lead the way in late night TV. After Rodney King was beaten nobody said anything. Johnny was away on vacation and Leno was hosting. Johnny came back a week after the beating and open fired on the LAPD and Darrel Gates. "It's so hot that the LAPD is pulling motorist over in the shade to beat them" ----Johnny Carson "Cardinal Mahoney went to police head quarters today with a bullhorn and yelled out "Come on out Darrel, we now you're in there" ----Johnny Carson

Why does it say "recent"? It was due to episodes like this that caused the panic back in the 1970's. Everyone watched late night TV, tonight shows, so they listened more to what was said on them than the news

I loved Johnny Carson before I ever saw his show. The man in the apartment below us watched and I could hear it from the register vent in my bedroom. I was supposed to be sleeping and every once in a while my mother would hear me laugh, I would tell her I was laughing at something that happened in school. “Go to sleep” is all she’d say. I couldn’t tell you what my favorite was because they were all great.

Hi, Thanks so much for posting anything at all related to the “Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson”. Specifically, it would be great if you could put up any Carnac skit. They were my ( and countless others) favorite. All the best !!

The toilet manufacturing companies sued Johnny for this joke. The public believed Johnny and the next day after the Broadcast, there was a mad rush in stores and Super Markets for toilet paper. The toilet companies had to spend overtime producing toilet paper to reach the demand.

I am inside the store of a local retailer and I am having a PRIVATE CONVERSATION with another party inside the store ... we both where discussing the VIRUS CRISIS. Before you know it the owner said to us ... "there will be NO TALK of the VIRUS inside my store!" EXCUSE ME?!! After the owner completed the transaction with a customer at the till ... I walked up to the owner and explained that if any business chooses to try and LIMIT FREE SPEECH at their location then this will be one location for which I WILL NOT RETURN!!! Sure, every business owner RESERVES THE RIGHT to REFUSE SERVICE ... but if you choose to limit a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT then you have another thing coming! We could had been talking about STINKY FEET and we could had been asked to leave ... but YOU BEST BE CAREFUL if you think you are going to tell people WHAT THEY CAN and CANNOT TALK ABOUT. IT'S BAD ENOUGH that some businesses try to limit OPEN CARRY ... now, YOU WANT TO GO AFTER FREE SPEECH? Ha! Concerning businesses that choose to keep such "policy" ... BOYCOTT! Sure, if it was HATE SPEECH or DISRESPECT towards other patrons or employees ... well, that's one thing but not a DISCUSSION on a TOPIC IMPORTANT TO EVERYONE right now!!! WHAT NEXT? Are we going to visit a restaurant and on their menu is a list of TOPICS YOU ARE ALLOWED TO DISCUSS at the table with another list of TOPICS THAT ARE FORBIDDEN??? I DON'T THINK SO!!! GEE, that EXPERIENCE was about as BAD as some of these SOCIAL MEDIA services that try and LIMIT FREE SPEECH on their platforms ... again, I DON'T THINK SO! Here is my LETTER TO THE EDITOR after dealing with some of these social media sites ... www.minotdailynews.com/opinion/letters/2019/05/losing-free-speech/?fbclid=IwAR3lOVnV5kRsknkGygzLDZgBpoXx7iLkcZDuzQ4B-AgkhDqCx5oWKQLiDvQ

So far, as of today (3.23.2020) there are no shortages of anything in my town in East Tennessee and no hysterical morons rushing about buying up everything in sight including toilet paper. I went to a few stores (different stores have better prices on some things) on 3.20 for a few needed items and there weren't many shoppers and the shelves were all fully stocked. Hope it stays that way!
