Goodbye George Carlin

I want to join the big community mourning for one of the greatest (read THE greatest - from my point of view) comedian(s) of all time: George Carlin, who died last Saturday of a heart failure at the age of 71. I was litterally shocked when I heard the bad news. I will not write a lot because his work which is speaking for itself says much more than I could. But I still want to express my deepest respect for him, which he earned trough his work and just as being the person he was, although I did not find the time to write about his death (or "passing away" in soft language George criticized) earlier. George Carlin will not die on this blog. I will continue to post information and videos related to him, but this time I will just leave you with some links to recent articles about him. FAREWELL GEORGE!
