George Carlin…

George Carlin
May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008

On Sunday, June 22nd, 2008, one of the very few people in show business who I can honestly say that I looked up to and respected for many years, died.

For the most part, I consider Hollywood and show business to be the shallow recipient of wealth and accolades which it does not sincerely deserve…in most cases…

…but every now and then, somebody comes along and uses that venue to touch others, stand for something and make a difference…

…One such somebody, was George Carlin…

…A man who challenged us all to question everything, take nothing for granted, and clearly see the absurdities which we humans are constantly embroiling ourselves in.

I’ve never felt connected to anyone in show business, quite like I felt connected to George…He was a living hero of mine…

…and I was so damned depressed, when I heard of his death last week…

You will be missed and mourned by millions of us, George…
