This really saddened me this morning. What a shame.

RIP, Mr Carlin.

George was maybe the only comic I could *truly* not believe in. This was bad news. But I suppose if we demanded that he stick around, he'd probably have done this just to get our goat. I almost might have met him once...a family relation, like 1962. Weird to see that that the station where he and my cousin started out is now "Christian Talk Radio!"

Funny man. R.I.P. Al Sleet.

I'm definitely bummed. I have a soft spot in my heart for people who really know their way around manipulating words and language, and Carlin was a genius at it.
