I'm speechless. He was one of my all-time favorites. May he rest in peace.

Wow.

I know he was "sort of" old, but I'm still shocked.

RIP

What's even more sad is the last several times I saw him, he wasn't funny at all. It just seemed like he was sad and overly bitter to the point I felt sorry for him. I never realized he had so many drug problems. That would certainly help explain his cynicism.

RIP :-/

Pretty shocking. Not what I wanted to wake up to on a Monday morning.

In tribute, I bring you a list:

1. :-X
2. :-X
3. :-X
4. :-X
5. :-X
6. :-X
7. :-X

Fans will know what this is. Heck, just about everyone should know. It led to a Supreme Court ruling on obscenity which has ramifications to this day.

RIP, Free Speech Crusader.

Yeah, not exactly what I planned to wake up to either. He was one of the greatest. I'll never forget the speech he wrote for George Bush after 9/11.

RIP, George. :,-(
