The King is Dead...


I just learned of the passing of George Carlin. This is the worst news I've heard all year. I had a feeling this was going to happen any day now, and lo and behold...

George Carlin was not only one of the best comedians of the twentieth century, but also one of the most under-appreciated philosophical minds of our (or indeed any) age. The world is diminished by his absence. In pace requiscat, Mr. Carlin. As my feeble words are hardly enough to do justice for so great a man, please read the New York Times obituary for a more fitting tribute.
