George Carlin: 1937-2008
Have you noticed that quite often when you leave someone they ask you to relay an affectionate message to someone else? They'll say, "Give my love to Klaus. Tell Klaus Rebecca sends her love."
Do you mind that? Do you mind being used that way? The awesome responsibility of carrying Rebecca’s love to Klaus? Suppose you don't see Klaus? What do you do with Rebecca's love? Carry it around? Give it to someone else? – excerpt from Napalm & Silly Putty by George Carlin.
George Carlin’s humor has always been a beacon – a guiding light through the otherwise murky waters of commercial humor. He is quoted as having said, "I think it is the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately." Yes, George was funny. But more importantly, George made us think - an awesome responsibility that he so effortlessly carried.
