George Carlin remembered

He is hardly of the same world as Tim Russert, or even Jim McKay, but I do mourn the passing of George Carlin, at age 71. I really appreciated much of what he stood for. He had the smarts and the courage to stand up for what he believed. His tactics were sometimes a bit skewed, but you always knew "where he was coming from!" As he aged, he became more overtly cerebral - which I, for one, appreciated. It helped me understand some of his weirdness as bit better.

I hope he'll be there to keep things straight, and entertain us, if there is a next world to enjoy!

Not withstanding his passage, it is another good day!

Dr. Bill ;-)
