Bummer: George Carlin's Dead

I just saw an announcement of the death of George Carlin due to heart failure. That's too bad. I thought I was going to die from heart failure once back in 1999 because I was laughing so hard at one of Carlin's HBO specials.

Luckily for Carlin and his fans, his death won't be greeted with the endless media blathering that accompanied the death of Tim Russert.

This is terribly depressing news to me. I'm a huge Carlin fan for many reasons. He had a very intelligent brand of comedy and always offered something worth thinking about. I'm sad he's gone. Stand Up Comedy has lost one of it's best.

as much as I think Tim Russert did a good job with asking the hard questions, I think George Carlin's death deserves more notice.

Amen to that. Carlin was just a more memorable figure.
