I was up late tonight, and just found that George Carlin has passed away. I don’t know what to say. This is the first celebrity death that has affected me in a long time. The man was a genious and an inspiration. I had the luck to meet him once, and out of the hundreds of “celebrities” I’ve met, he was in the top 3 of the nicest. He will be missed dearly.
I owe him a lot. In some ways, he is responsible for a lot of who I am and the way I look at things. Without him, I would not be who I am today.
For me, this is the kind of death that changes your life. I guess the only way to put it is that because of my age and generation, my John Lennon/Hendrix/Morrison/etc just died.
