George Carlin (1937-2008)

George Carlin died yesterday in California at 71.

I didn't appreciate some of his humor, but overall the man was a comic genius and a cultural icon. I'll bet many of today's top comedians were influenced in some way by Carlin's comedy and commentary on society.

If there's one thing I can appreciate about George Carlin is that he certainly was not politically correct, as his comedy reflected that and generally tested boundaries of what was acceptable or not and many times crossed the very boundaries he was setting.

He wasn't funny for a long time, but in his heyday the man was as good as it gets. Sadder world without him.
