This comes a bit late, but I am inclined to make a mention anyway. Many have already heard, but famed comedian George Carlin passed away in Santa Monica, California last Sunday as a result of heart failure. Carlin reveled in his status as a contemporary great, a comedic milestone, and a social philosopher.
His only major regret in life, as stated by himself, was the impact his drug use has had on his daughter. George Carlin's comedy has entertained millions, and his truth has affected many of us. Carlin was 71.
