Another one of my heroes is gone.
Maybe it's my age, maybe it's the season, maybe it's just 7 years of Bush, but I find I no longer have any tolerance for bullshit.
Which makes George Carlin one of my heroes. As you probably know, George died last night, leaving us without his strong voice in this season of unceasing bullshit.
It's nearly impossible to imagine today, but George was arrested several times for his "7 words" bit. The first time in 1972. That's right, the cops hauled his ass to jail for doing comedy. Now that's bullshit.
In honor of George, here's one of my favorite rants against bullshit. Enjoy.
