R.I.P. George Carlin

I mentioned George Carlin's routine on "Stuff" in my 100 Things post recently. This morning I turn on NPR and learn that the man died yesterday.

We're losing too many entertainment/journalist legends/icons lately! First Harvey Korman, then Jim McKay, then Tim Russert, and now George Carlin! (And let's not forget Cyd Charisse or Stan Winston, either).

Arrgh...this is too sad. Anyway, when you get a chance, go to Google video and type in "George Carlin Stuff". It's my favorite of all of his routines.

And Mr. Carlin, they're playing your "Seven Dirty Words" routine on the radio today--albeit censored. I'm not sure you'd like that.
