R.I.P. George Carlin
The first thing I saw when I got online this morning was that George Carlin had died. This guy was nothing more than a comic genius, and in my opinion, the reigning American icon of comedy. "Groundbreaking" doesn't begin to cover it. His timing and delivery were unsurpassed, and he could make an audience laugh simply by raising an eyebrow. I'm very happy I got to see him live several years ago. Here is one of my favorite bits of his, about "kitty cats." Warning: Explicit language. I mean c'mon, it's f***in' George Carlin!
