RIP, George Carlin

I'm going to miss George Carlin. I don't want to launch into a First Amendment rant here and get into why "Seven Dirty Words" was so important.  Other bloggers are going to have at that all day.

I'll just say that I thought he was amazingly funny, even when he was ranting more than he was joking.  I still quote from a lot of his routines.  Just the other day I used a line from his "Germs" routine when talking about why my immune system does such a great job keeping me from getting sick.

The Comedy Gold album and a few other classic routines have taken up residence on my iPod and there they'll stay.
