We are a bit late here in reporting George Carlin's death at age 71. Some of us are fans of the comic but no one felt up to posting anything personal or substantive about Carlin's life or his philosophy that has not already been widely reported in the media. Rather than try to explain why his sharp mind and social commentary impressed me, here are some links to videos where Carlin took aim at religion, football and America's love of war.
While right wing hypocrisy was most frequently the target of Carlin's withering satire, he was hardly easy on self righteous smugness on the other side of the political divide. Watch Carlin take on ardent environmentalists.
