By now you’ve probably heard that comedian George Carlin has died. I’m not sure what I can add to what many others have already said. To be honest, I often found him both annoying and offensive but he did sometimes make a good point and I liked some of his observations about how we use words. This will probably seem a little strange but I enjoy reading what he said more than watching and listening to him say it.
Here are a whole bunch of George Carlin quotes. And I will add two of my favorites:
“We will never be an advanced civilization as long as rain showers can delay the launching of a space rocket.”
“I love and treasure individuals as I meet them; I loathe and despise the groups they identify with and belong to.”
Goodbye George and thanks for all the laughs.
