Well, the only person who's not a fictional character who I've long since said is my hero has died on Sunday. I knew he wasn't going to be around much longer, considering he was 71 years old and his career in comedy has spanned over fifty years. George Carlin. One of my favorite people to ever walk the planet has recently departed it. He's been my hero for as long as I can recall because anytime I heard his material on HBO or his comedy albums, I've realized how much the two of us think alike. There's always something he says that I've thought about at some time or another and I'd definately call him a genius. Not everything he says is funny, but all of it needed to be said. And what WAS funny was hilarious. The man's a legend. That's about all I can say before I start repeating myself. I was really hoping I'd get to meet him before he died, though.
