George Carlin dead at 71 - revisited

To say I am devastated is an understatement.

I have spent a good portion of the day looking at various YouTube clips reminiscing and marveling on how good he was at pointing out both how similar we all are and how our government & big business fuck us on a daily basis.

Some of my favorite Carlin quotes:

"Do you know why they call it a blow JOB? It implies there's a work ethic attached. . . makes you feel like you did something good for the economy."

"I don't understand it. . .selling is legal. . . .fucking is legal. . . . .why isn't selling fucking legal. Why should it be illegal to sell something that is perfectly legal to give away?"

"Did you ever notice how your "shit" is "stuff" and their "stuff" is "shit"?"

Also, given that I just spent 5 hours on a flight that should have been 2 1/2, I figured that I would include one of my favorite Carlin sketches on flying:
