Honoring George Carlin

"Now speaking of dead people."
- George Carlin

A great freethinker has left. I do wonder, however, if Carlin, who was a well-known non-believer in all myths whether it was demons, unicorns, angels, gods, or centaurs, would even want to be eulogized? I doubt it if the remembrance is wrapped up in superstition. But I can say that the self-described 'old fuck' cheered me up with his grim, vulgar and yet enlightening satire. He called civilization out for some of its silly and lazy euphemisms based on lies and superstition, especially on religion and God.

I'll miss him. Rent or buy his DVDs.
