    A great write-up on Carlin can be found here.

    He will be dearly missed.
     
  2. He is my absolute favorite stand-up comedians ever. Yeah he will be missed :(

    There are so many George Carlin quotes that I love but most of them I can't really post on this forum because they might cause some upset. But here's one that I like:

    "If it’s true that our species is alone in the universe, then I’d have to say that the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little."

    He was a good guy. Although being tied down by the FCC rules, he still managed to make it happen. We used to listen to him all the time at my previous job at night and have it blasted hearing the F bombs echo through the office. Quite a loss to the comedic world.

    I've mentioned this in other forum sites and I mean it: He was the Will Rogers of our time.
     
  5. OMG!!!! I haven't had the news or TV on in days...if I wasn't so busy being a freak of a TT addict I'd know about this! I saw him live twice...I'm so sad...this just sucks. Thanks for posting the link up there! What a huge loss to my generation! (which is OLD!)
