RIP George Carlin

I’m sure you’ve all seen the news that [w:George Carlin] (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) passed away yesterday from heart failure (NYT obit). Carlin was an amazing comic and, what’s more, a keen (if somewhat vulgar!) observer of the American condition including our politics and government. He’s no doubt sitting on some roof somewhere laughing at all of us schmucks (see Frisbeetarianism!).
