R.I.P. George Carlin

Hey there to anybody who gives a crap. It's been a while since I posted anything on here, but I have to say, I was saddened today when I saw that my comic hero, George Carlin had passed. This guy's biting, tell-it-like-it-is (and sometimes FCC-inappropriate) wisdom was a big inspiration for me growing up. Though I try to keep my humor cleaner than Carlin (and I wasn't crazy about his take on religion), he nonetheless contributed to the matter-of-fact everyday humor style that I'm crafting in my creative writing (and trying to implement in my Master's thesis). So, there ya have it folks--the end of an era.
