RIP George Carlin

George Carlin was always one of my favorite comedians. In my opinion, few comedians were as witty, intelligent and insightful as George so I was saddened to learn yesterday of his passing at the age of 71.

I think few understood language and how it relates to us as well as Carlin and his comedy contributed greatly to my interest in the impact of language on culture and thought.

Since George and his comedy added a bit of joy and happiness to my life and caused me to think in the process, I couldn’t help but post this message.

Thanks for all the laughs, George.
