Funny Man George Carlin Passes Away

LOS ANGELES (AP) — George Carlin, the dean of counterculture comedians whose biting insights on life and language were immortalized in his "Seven Words You Can Never Say On TV" routine, died of heart failure Sunday. He was 71. LINK

I saw George Carlin in the early seventies at the HSU field house when his acts were still in infancy. He did his "seven words you can't say on TV" routine and the crowd roared with laughter. His classic style of humor has been often imitated but never to the perfection Carlin possessed. Rest in Peace you "hippy-dippy weatherman."
