the passing of George Carlin
I really liked George Carlin. He was a personal hero of mine, and I'm greatly saddened by his death.
This man was brilliant mix of fearlessness, intelligence, wit, and personality.
I recently missed an opportunity to see him play a set over in Fort Worth. I'll regret that forever now, since that was really the only opportunity I'll have ever had to watch him in person.
He said in an interview that in another life he'd probably be a teacher. I think he'd make an excellent journalist as well.
The world needs more people like George Carlin, and it will mourn its loss and feel the emptiness he leaves behind for quite some time.
RIP, and we'll miss you.
