George Carlin in Trenton on April 4, 2008

The world is a little less funny today, after the loss of George Carlin. I knew of Carlin first through an LP (*gasp!* I'm that old) that one of my college roommates had. I often enjoyed his comedy, and occasionally found it offensive. I had to turn off the audiobook When Will Jesus Bring the Porkchops? before it was over, but I laughed like crazy over some of it. I think he would have been pleased in both respects.

Carlin was more than a comedian, he was a humorist. Ask Erma Bombeck the difference. I loved his comparison of baseball and football, "why football should be the Great American Pastime."
