George Carlin Died Today

Comic master George Carlin died today at 71 years old. He will forever be known as an outspoken critic of religion, political hypocrisy and bad grammar and in his 50 odd year career he paved the way for modern comedians and personalities such as Chris Rock, Robert Klein, Howard Stern, Louis Black, Jon Stewart and many, many others. As a writer I owe the man a tremendous debt for having the courage and fortitude to speak truth to power at whatever the cost. There is a new headliner in heaven.
More on his career and life here and here. He will be missed.
