I will give this blog to Leno for $45 million

January 22 in history

1889: "Columbia Phonograph is formed in Washington, D.C."

And they signed Bruce Springsteen the next day.

2010: "Conan O'Brien performs his last Tonight Show on NBC as a part of the Tonight Show conflict of 2010."

One year, NBC thought Conan was indispensable. Next year, they pay $45 million to get rid of him. I want to work for NBC!

Notable quote

"If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a citizen of the world, and that his heart is no island cut off from other lands, but a continent that joins to them."

  - Francis Bacon (January 22, 1561 - April 9, 1626)

Song of the Day

From Malcom McLaren (January 22 1946 – April 8 2010), who would have turned 70.
