George Carlin Goes To The Grey Havens
George Carlin passed away on Sunday. There are not enough truly bright lights in this fading republic that for reasons passing understanding still attempts to pass itself off as the United States of America, but Carlin was one of those bright lights. So much of what he spoke about in his comedy routines was startlingly correct - but he was seen by far too many people as someone who just swore a lot, and that's too bad. You'd be hard pressed to convince me that there has ever been a better stand-up comedian than George Carlin.
