On the passing of George Carlin
I was talking to my mom last night about George Carlin, the American comedic genius who died Sunday. I've always, always loved Carlin. Mom told me that she & my dad would let all of us kids watch his specials on TV, bad words & all. I don't remember that too much, but it's probably the reason we all hung on his every word during a performance. George Carlin made sense. Watching him made us feel as if we were in on a big joke and that it was okay to laugh at the stoopid people who didn't get it.
Here is a clip that encapsulates why George Carlin was the best there ever was. Rest in peace, George.
