George Carlin: RIP



Everything dies, but at least the comedy lives on.

I had the chance to see Carlin in Las Vegas a couple of years ago. Some might have argued that the older Carlin had lost a step or two, but even if he had, he was still far ahead of the pack.

The man was brilliant. Yes, he was a tad bit political, and he didn't care what "comfort zone" you had -- religion or politics or whatever. He stepped into the zone and made you uncomfortable.

More importantly, he made you think. What an amazing thing for a comedian to do, but actually, that's what all the great ones do.

Humor with purpose.
