Carlin: He will be F#@king Missed

George Carlin Dead at 71He skewered us with his rapier-fast wit, acid-etched humor, and painfully honest opinions. His social commentary shed light on everything from the social value of private golf clubs (none) to the way "politcally correct" language dilutes the responsibilities of those who use it.

He was the first person I had ever heard attack the church as an institution, deride the media as a whole, and it was his frank views of mankind and our country that indoctrinated me into the world of skepticism.

He was angry. He was funny. And he will be fucking missed.
