Re: RIP George Carlin

****in' A...I was just talking to my friends at work about the last 2 big deaths and how it always comes in 3's, first was that political guy, then Stan Winston, we rattled off a few names but George didn't come up, god damn it, he was my favorite comedian of all time. This really, really sucks ass..

Re: RIP George Carlin

I just heard this on the news this morning. I had no idea he was 71. Truly one of the great comic genius! R.I.P.

I doubt George would have thought his drug choices were 'too bad', they helped make him who he was. He was the epitome of open-mindedness, and the truest 'outside the box' thinker there ever was, long before that term was ever coined. He didn't have any regrets and he was the best ever. I like to think he was more of a philosopher who just happened to be funny. He would probably have said 'too bad' about your religious choices, but he certainly wouldn't have said it the day after you died.

RIP George...

I saw him a few years ago - with my Dad ironically - and honesly both our stomachs hurt afterwards from laughing the entire show. It is rare to have the gift of being a genius yet also the ability to make others not only think but laugh out loud. Gonna miss him... glen

Re: RIP George Carlin

I'm really bummed out today about it. My wife saw him in Lakewood, NJ at the Strand Theater. There was a major snow blizzard and he came out into the audience. I never got to see my favorite all time comedian. A real genius. I guess God needed a comedian.
