Farewell, George Carlin
Shoot. That is, shit. After all, "shoot is just shit with two "o"s" as George Carlin told us. And he was my favorite comedian of all time. I have used his 7 dirty words sketch in college classes on art and politics, and it's still a crackup, even to today's college students. Few comedians have challenged our social mores so vigorously and humorously.
