RIP George Carlin by mrsthing on 23 June 2008 2:49pm
 
I couldn't believe it when I saw the news this morning.

He was such a part of my rebellious youth, I feel like I've lost a friend.

Along with Python, Carlin was one of my best anti-establishment heroes. I never got to see him in concert...

Yeah.

He has to have been about the most articulate high school drop-out ever.

There were some wonderful interviews that Terry Gross had done with him over the years on today's "Fresh Air". http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=91802870

His humor could be pretty foul, but he was funny. I enjoyed him. He was a breath of fresh air back in the day... Yep, 71 is young.

I waste not a breath when p****d off, and use 'the seven bad words you can't say on television'. If you don't remember them, they are: ****, ****, ****, ****, *********, ***********, and ****.

Thanks George.

Indeed, RIP.

Pete, you forgot the sublist of three: ****, ****, and ****. LOL!

"**** shouldn't even be on the list. Sounds like a nickname...****, ****, ****, ****, !"
