    So sad, a real pioneer and one of a kind. Happy Trails George, RIP.
    If you're not part of the solution,
    you're part of the problem.

    Didnt he write a beautiful life statement recently? I think it was after the death of his wife? Am I thinking of the right person?

    Everyone dies of 'heart failure', but what caused his heart to fail?

    heart failure is no answer.

    Carlin and Pryor...2 comedic geniuses of our time...sad news for sure.

    So glad I was able to download a bunch of Carlin's sound clips from comedycentral when they were available. I used to listen to them routinely, to get my day off to a good start with a hearty laugh. I have some of his books, even gave one to my Dad in his failing years...to raise his spirits.

    Rest In Peace, George Carlin...you are greatly missed already but never forgotten.
