RIP: George Carlin

Long my very favorite comedian (I mean, for something like 25 years) and someone I took as an example to be followed for his outspoken frankness, if not for his personal habits. Go carefully, George. You will be missed.

With this luck, the trip to the hereafter is an airplane, and he'll be asked to preboard by getting on the plane. For George, Hell would be an eternity of bad grammar and mangled syntax.
