Goodbye George Carlin

National treasure passes at age 71.

George Carlin passed away over the weekend. From what I heard, heart failure was the likely cause of his passing. He will be missed. I really like his book Napalm and Silly Putty. I don't just like it; I own a copy. He's also written some other really good books as well. What I found particularly amusing about Carlin is he took the truth and legitimacy of world politics and real life situations and found humor in those situations. Humor that often made me laugh, as well as millions of other people I'm sure. As serious of a world as we live in, a little laughter never hurt anybody. Wouldn't you agree?? Carlin's has indeed passed on, but his legacy will surely live on.

R.I.P. George Carlin
