"Johnny Carson: The Man Who Retired"

"Now that Letterman is calling it quits, a look back at the king of late night in 2002."

One bit encapsulates his appeal:

Even so, he was intrigued to learn that sales [of DVDs of his old shows] had jumped in the wake of September 11th . . .

"David Letterman's top 10 most memorable moments"

Why Madonna--#9--thought she could embarrass or show up Dave is beyond me. 

Bonus: why Letterman's show was "a turning point in American cultural history". Overblown but interesting.
