George Carlin R.I.P.

George Carlin is dead. Damn. This guy was my hero. He affected the way that I think about everyday stuff like voting and grammar. I'll never forget his voices. As a teenager in the 1970's, I would listen to his comedy albums like Class Clown endlessly. I had his routines memorized. Hal Sleet the Hippy-Dippy Weatherman. He's also responsible for one of my favorite quotes of all time: "Don't believe anything the Bush administration tells you. In fact, play it safe: don't believe anything anybody tells you." I'll miss George Carlin.
