    From msnbc...

    Comedian George Carlin dies at 71
    Anti-Establishment icon gained fame with his ‘Filthy Words’ routine
    BREAKING NEWS
    Reuters
    updated 9:59 p.m. PT, Sun., June. 22, 2008

    LOS ANGELES - Comedian George Carlin, a counter-culture hero famed for his routines about drugs and dirty words, died of heart failure at a Los Angeles-area hospital Sunday, a spokesman said. He was was 71.
    Carlin, who had a history of heart problems, died at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica about 6 p.m. PT after being admitted earlier in the afternoon for chest pains, spokesman Jeff Abraham told Reuters.
    Known for his edgy, provocative material, Carlin achieved status as an anti-Establishment icon in the 1970s with stand-up bits full of drug references and a routine about seven dirty words you could not say on television. A regulatory battle over a radio broadcast of his "Filthy Words" routine ultimately reached the U.S. Supreme Court.
    He certainly was one of a kind.

    My stomach dropped when I read this. I've seen him live 6 times and there was no man funnier. Rest in peace George, this one truly stings me.

    Re: George Carlin Dies

    Wow - I will never forget him being "Mr.Conductor" on Thomas the Tank Engine.

    I had to explain to my children who he was - how do you tell a 4-year-old that Mr. Conductor at Shining Time Station is the same man who told us all the words you can't say on television? ironic

    Re: George Carlin Dies

    Some of my favorite bits of his....

    WINO radio..."Wonderful WINO - the big sound in the big town"...WINO time, bing bong, five minutes past the big hour of five o'clock...

    "It's eight o'clock in Los Angeles. It's nine o'clock in Demver. It's 10:00 in Chicago. And in Baltimore, it's 6:42. Time for the 11o'clock report...

    Baseball...is pastoral. You're going...home. FOOTBALL is warlike. You're dogging a blitz to invade enemy territory...

    Carlin was a classic.

    I've always wanted to see him live... one of my favourite comedians.

    I can't believe I passed up on him last time he came to here... didn't have enough money.

    RIP

    Re: George Carlin Dies

    Frisbeetarianism is the belief that when you die, your soul goes up on the roof and gets stuck. -- George Carlin

    He was one of the ones that was real...... he spoke the truth but made it sound like he had just invented it on the spot.
