Re: Steve Allen has died

Steve Allen used to do "on-the-street" bits for _The Tonight Show_, as
Jay Leno does now.   

I think it was Allen who did the following bit: he hailed a cab and
opened the door to the back seat.  He then tossed in a big salami, told
the driver, "LaGuardia - step on it!", and shut the door as the cabbie
took off.
