Every time I see the name of a celebrity that I watched and enjoyed in my youth, it makes me feel older and closer to the grave myself. George Carlin was only 71. Tim Russert passed away a few days ago, he was only 58 (ten years older than me).

I wasn’t a great fan of George Carlin, I certainly had more appreciation for Bill Cosby or Bob Newhart or even Richard Pryor, but he had some funny moments. I think I have posted before about comedy and comedic performances so I won’t delve back into that here. George was a funny and smart guy, and I’ll miss him.
