  1. Loyal telethon devotee, going back to 1971, when the local fishbowl remote was in black and white.

  2. Ed McMahon has died

    LOS ANGELES – Ed McMahon, the loyal "Tonight Show" sidekick who bolstered boss Johnny Carson with guffaws and a resounding "H-e-e-e-e-e-ere's Johnny!" for 30 years, has died at a Los Angeles hospital. He was 86. Publicist Howard Bragman says McMahon died early Tuesday at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center surrounded by his family. Bragman didn't give a cause of death, saying only that McMahon had a "multitude of health problems the last few months."

  4. I bumped into Lou in 1993 after sitting in the telethon audience for five or six hours. It was like 7 or 8 in the morning and Lou passed us as we were exiting the Sahara "space center" where the show was staged. I grabbed my telethon pin (the ones they handed out around the casino) and asked Lou to sign it. Even though he was anxious about getting back on the set in time, he very graciously stopped and signed. He seemed pretty old and hard-of-hearing, but also seemed to have a very kind heart. My belated condolences to his family. On a more upbeat note, I always enjoyed his role in Jerry's live performances. In addition to lobbing a stool onto the stage when Jerry requested one, he'd also heave ten or fifteen canes at Jerry in the same manner, with perfect comedic timing. I'm sure they'd done it hundreds of times, but it always seemed fresh. As sad as it is that all these "old school" performers are passing, I can't help but be glad we had the opportunity to see them while they were here. There'll never be another group of performers like them.
