George Carlin (1937-2008)

He was one of the three greatest comedians of my lifetime and one of the biggest influences on how I think and make humor. You lived the life that Lenny Bruce never did and made his style of social commentary available to generations who should still care. Although I'm devastated, you've earned your rest. May the world remember.

EDIT: Make sure and find a copy of Jammin' In New York and listen to his closer "The Planet is Fine". Even through Lenny Bruce he imposes a Zen-like realism to us and the earth, probably the second greatest dialog that ever closed one of his shows short of "Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television".
