Goodbye (for now) to Jay Leno

I am a day late with this one, but what the heck. Thursday night was Jay Leno’s last appearance as host of the Tonight Show. Jay had a star-studded guest list, including Billy Crystal (who was a guest on Leno’s first show), Carol Burnett, Oprah Winfrey and Garth Brooks. He even had Conan O’Brien, who briefly replaced him in 2009.

Leno noted how many things had changed in the last 22 years (when he joined the Tonight Show “marijuana was illegal and you could smoke anywhere you wanted to”) and some things that hadn’t changed (“OJ never found the real killers”). He lamented losing his NBC health insurance and having to turn to Obamacare.

Leno is a classy guy, and I wish him well.
