I cannot say much about the passing of George Carlin yesterday at the age of 71. What little I know of his standup routine was gleaned from cursory viewing on TV and through the occasional audio quips or YouTube videos. He was certainly an impassioned comedian, one who many claim was controversial in his routines, but managed to tread the line between utter vulgarity and comedic acceptance; those who appreciate his brand of humor are able to see just that- behind the curses lies some really funny logic, and bless them for seeing it that way.

Lord knows there's a lot of people who take things way too seriously.
