[BlogEntry] Farewell, George Carlin. May The Forces of Evil become confused on the way to your door.

George Carlin died, which I suppose had to happen eventually. But it's always sad when such an iconic personality – even one when you sit back and say, "Wait, have I heard from him in the last 15 years?" — dies. It says something about the impact they had on popular culture when their loss hits people that hard, that many years later.

(The line above is actually from a Carlin routine that I happened to pull out of memory.) Just last week or so, Jim Norton told a George Carlin joke on Opie and Anthony show last week:

"For those of you keeping score, I'm ahead of Richard Pryor in heart attacks 2-1, but Richard's ahead of me in setting yourself on fire. It went a little something like this, Richard had a heart attack, then I had a heart attack. Then Richard set himself on fire, and I said F%^* that, I'm having another heart attack!"
