    He was a great comedian, even though I have to say he was a little too extreme with his P.O.V. sometimes.

    My favorites would have to be "Monday Night Crucifixions" and the "Rapist Hallway."

    My wife liked him, and I found him pretty funny at times.
    Even though he was pretty durn crude for my taste.

    he was very intelligent and used it in his comedy.

    a great voice to follow in the steps of Jello B and the Dead Kennedy's!!

    This truly is a sad day. He is one of the greatest comedic minds of all time. I saw him about a year ago and he looked like his health was declining. He will truly be missed.

    Sad to here he passed away. Carlin was one of my all-time favorite comedians since childhood.

    He was a great comedian & philosopher who looked at things from "outside the box".

    I still enjoy listening to "7 words you cannot use on television"

    Very funny, witty comic. One of my favorites was his comparison of football v. baseball. RIP George.

    Re: Comedian George Carlin dies in Los Angeles at 71

    Such a shock at the news this morning.
    I didn't even realize he was that damn old.
    Still see him in my mind as from early 70's when I first heard him.

    Even though I found alot of his stuff a bit out there, he still made me laugh......

    R.I.P. my friend.
    You have and always will crack me up..... :'( :'( :'(
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
