George Carlin, Dead At 71

Legendary comedian George Carlin has died at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California, according to Reuters and other sources. The first ever host of Saturday Night Live, Carlin was set to receive the Mark Twain Prize from the Kennedy Center, a lifetime achievement award presented to an outstanding comedian.
Carlin has long been my favorite political and social satirist and his voice, forever honest, will be missed. Today the world is short one of its most strident and unflinching observers. With the country in a seemingly unending war (two of them, actually), a growing gas crisis and almost constant government corruption, we need his unflinching honesty, clearness of vision and common sense now, more than ever.
Rest In Peace, George Carlin.
Over the next few days I hope to post a few of my favorite Carlin clips. And remember:
Shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, tits!
