I heard on the radio that 25 years today, the Oslo Accords were signed. Huh, I thought, that reminds me of a joke on the first monologue Conan O’Brien made on his first episode of Late Night. His friends had always told him that the day he’d be on TV was the day there would be peace in the Middle East.
Then I found that they posted that first episode because it has actually been 25 years.
Exactly like a younger me 25 years ago, I was able to watch until the first guest came on. Then I became sleepy and restless. Those early episodes were rough, but Conan, Andy and Max kept working hard. By the time I was on summer vacation the next year and could watch whole episodes, I thought they were really hitting their stride.
