Happy Birthday George Carlin
« on: May 12, 2012, 07:37:08 PM »
I'm indebted to Margaret Ward on the twitter (@MargaretEWard) for reminding me that today would have been George Carlin's 75th birthday.

For anyone not aware of George he was an American stand-up comedian, with a love of language and an ability to shape that into the art of comedy.  Watching or listening to him in full flow is like witnessing something akin to a force of nature.  Although whilst nature can be unrelenting and yet indiscriminate, George would compose his routines like the great classical masters painting truths with words.  Sadly missed.
