Are you wearing black for Cash?

Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash was born February 26, 1932.

Today would have been Johnny Cash's 78th birthday, and as we noted in a previous post, there's been a push by the Cash family, producer Rick Rubin and Cash's record label to get people to wear black in honor of the singer known as the Man in Black.

Yes, there's a promotional side to it - Cash's last Rubin-produced album was just released - but there's nothing wrong with paying tribute to Johnny Cash. As many of you indicated in your comments, he had quite an impact on American culture.

Some of the messages we received were quite moving, about parents who instilled their love of Cash's music in their children, or people who wrote about what songs such as "Man in Black" or "What Is Truth" meant to them.

So, are you wearing black? Let us know - and feel free to send images or videos to iReport.

The late night wars get political

David LettermanDavid Letterman got a lovely boost in ratings during NBC’s late night schedule flub, but as Jay Leno prepares to reclaim his old job as host of "The Tonight Show" on March 1, the former rivals will be battling for viewers once again.

Leno’s guest list for the first week back, you’ll recall, features Jamie Foxx and Olympic Gold Medal skier Lindsey Vonn on Monday and Olympic Gold Medal snowboarder Shaun White and Sarah Palin on Tuesday.

Sounds like pretty tempting television and Letterman isn’t going down without a fight. He has his own actor on Monday with the likes of Bill Murray, and will also have his own GOP card to play on Tuesday night with Mitt Romney.

He’s following that up with Tom Brokaw and Jerry Seinfeld Wednesday, Tom Hanks on Thursday and Matt Damon on Friday.
