George Carlin, 1937 – 2008

Comedian George Carlin passed away Sunday of heart failure at the age of 71. It seems like George Carlin’s comedy was a part of my life since I was a tiny lass, and initially got all shocked and horrified at his routine about “The Seven Dirty Words You Can’t Say On Television.” Because I was about ten years old at the time and hadn’t yet become the expert at swearing that I am today. I never saw Carlin perform, but I did once meet his nephew, Dennis Carlin, who is a drummer in a punk rock band out in LA. He was pretty funny as well. Rest in “Mother Fucking Cock Sucking” peace, George.
