Ten years ago today, George Carlin died

Jerry Seinfeld wrote this about Carlin in the New York Times. He died ten years ago today as the result of a dodgy heart.   Thanks to Tom for links. Along with Richard Pryor, George Carlin was one of the greatest comic geniuses of all time. And because George used to work in radio, I have an extra soft spot for him. Here’s his NYT obituary. If you’ve ever seen his HBO specials, you’ll know that he rarely misspoke and almost never said “uh” or “er” in his delivery. Everything was meticulously rehearsed and executed. Amazing, really. I still love this bit.
