George Carlin

June 23rd, 2008

It’s very rare that celebrity deaths affect me. I firmly believe that the world puts entirely too much emphasis on our entertainers. They’re human just like the rest of us. And while they are talented, I’m not sure I agree that they deserve all the money and recognition we give them for their talents.

George Carlin is no different. But his death really bothers me. He was a great comedian. Mostly because he tells it like it is. He wasn’t afraid to put it all out there no matter who was listening and might get offended. And I respect him for that.

George Carlin died yesterday of heart failure. He had just performed at the Orleans Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas. He was 71.
