7. I never thought Carson was that funny.
Seriously, with respect to the man, he was too much my father's generation, sense of humor, too square, too fast with the cheap shot at anything that was not mainstream, and most of all I really never found very funny his costume antics which were frat house bullshit.

But he was a great natural comedian, to be sure, with a gift for the wonderful comeback from a dead joke and excellent delivery. And he did know his audience - I guess that's where he lost me.

I imagine Nixon thought he was a hoot.
