A Loss: George Carlin
As I was winding down a long day, checking emails and headlines, I saw that the brilliant comedienne and social commentator George Carlin had died. I'm tired and will have to save it for a post later in the week, but suffice it to say that he was in the category I put Lenny Bruce, the Smothers Brothers and a handful of others who use humor to look at our society and hopefully make us look at ourselves and one another and strive to make ourselves and what surrounds us a little better. Goodbye George-- long may you run.
