From the news:

George Carlin, 71, the much-honored American stand-up comedian whose long career was distinguished by pointed social commentary that placed him on the cultural cutting edge, died last night in Santa Monica, Calif.

He had long struggled with health problems and a heart condition dating to the 1970s.

Over a career of half a century, Carlin placed himself in the forefront of comic commentators on the American scene. He was particularly known for an album that referred to what he described as the seven words that could not be used on television.

Loved George Carlin

by Parthian on

I loved George Carlin, and saw him in Atlantic City in 99, and again on the West Coast in 2005. He was remarkable in 99, but by 2005 had lost much of his edge, and was far less energetic. He seemed completely out of it in 2005, either too much drinking, or drugs. Anyway, one of the greatest comedians of all time; truthful, sharp, politically incorrect which I loved.
