Ed McMahon died today.

I am just old enough to remember when he was Johnny Carson's sidekick on the Tonight Show back before Jay Leno too over. Ed had this huge personality that overcame a lot. Even a great bit about him farting during the show by the late George Carlin: "Hey, Ed! Move down man! WHEEEEEW! That was a Clydesdale fart..."

86 years is a pretty good run, especially for a fellow who served in both World War 2 and Korea. He had lots of friends in Hollywood and even with his legal troubles toward the end of his life, he didn't lose his sense of humor.

So long, Mr. McMahon. Say hello to Johnny and George for us up there.
