George Carlin is Dead

Postby Wise One » 2008 Jun 23 12:27

was a wonderful person who made my life, and those of millions, better for the light of humor he shined on our foibles.

His own foibles and demons were a burden that shortened his life, but they seemed also to sharpen his intellect and wit. I had the pleasure of meeting him, and I witnessed first-hand over several days a truly incredible effort and discipline that he put into preparation for his every performance.

From one of his routines, I note that he did not "pass away", or "expire" like a magazine subscription, or merely have a "terminal episode" or a "negative patient care outcome" in the hospital.'

Yesterday, he died.

Damn.

The Last of the Kennedy Dynasty - to be canonized you need:

*cheated at Harvard
*Father got his four years in military reduced to 2 years
*cited numerous times for reckless driving in Va
*questionable about the Chappaquiddick incident

But to be fair was selected as one of the Ten best senators

yo bro, still scratching my head.
Only in America could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be thought of as

(She's quoted as saying, "I went into surgery a celebrity, and came out anonymous.)

I'd forgotten this part of his. RIP

(not Henrik Ibsen) was wonderful and versatile, from his "Laugh In" days, to "Boston Legal." I had the pleasure of meeting and working with him in his Malibu Colony beach house, on a public policy project we were both interested in.

What a touching tribute. Makes one think about who will be left when we go and will their thoughts be anything as touching and heartfelt as Keith's thoughts of his father. To be someone's hero..............does it get any better than that?

One classy lady ... I'll miss her. I haven't seen anything on the cause of death yet.
PS - Note added: endometrial cancer

And, oh, I have the highest respect for her hubby.
