By: Mike McDaniel Many years ago–I can’t recall the exact year, but Johnny Carson was hosting the Tonight Show–A young Tom Selleck was his guest. If memory serves, he was then starring in Magnum, P.I. Carson asked Selleck his opinion on a political matter, and Selleck replied with wisdom, humility and common sense, something obviously lacking in a current generation of actors and other “entertainers.” He replied something like this: “I’m an actor. My job is to act as well as I can. I can’t imagine why anyone would want to know my opinion on politics.”
