George Carlin - RIP

FrenchDoc's picture

This really makes me sad. I am a huge fan of George Carlin. I will miss his curmudgeonly attitude, his lack of patience for religious stupidity and wonderful use of all the subtleties and absurdities of the English language to unveil our social ills.

He spoke for me.

I've been camping, so learned of this just now from you, FrenchDoc. A good way, I think. Such a loss, but he left so very, very much.

I have some very favorite quotes that I'll post tonight.

He was probably a genius, so utterly correct about so much on so many levels that I sometimes found myself too transfixed to laugh.

He was in the audience on one of the nights when Lenny Bruce was busted on stage...and was himself arrested for refusing to show his identification to the police!

I will miss Carlin in very much the same way as I miss Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

"Tomorrow, you're all going to wake up in a Brave New World, a world where the Constitution gets trampled by an army of terrorist clones created in a stem cell research laboratory, run by homosexual doctors who sterilize their instruments over burning American flags."

I think George Carlin is a MUCH greater loss to the nation and to the world than Tim Russert...
