as big a fan i am of his, i came to this same realization over the last few performances of his

You have to wonder how "good" a guy can remain after 30 years of endorsing the counterculture, only to see your audience keep lapping up the schlock the "regular" culture feeds them over and over.

The guy played to packed houses, to people who allegedly endorsed his ideas and ideals, yet nothing changed over the course of his career. The Man stayed in power, gained more power, and the people listening to Carlin tell them how much of a joke The Machine is kept fueling the machine. After a while, even the most staunch advocate of counterculture has to get cynical, you know?

The world just became a less funny place to live. RIP to my all-time fave comedian. Loved his albums & books & TV specials and even got to see him live once in the early 70's!

RIP Mr. Carlin. :,-(

No doubt my favorite stand-up comedian of all time. I used to get HBO for a while and the cost was well worth it since I was able to tape all 12 (now 14) of his HBO Specials. I like a lot of other stand-up comedians, but noone did it so good for so long. George Carlin is a genius IMO. You will be missed...but never forgotten. ;-D

Are you talking about this?

If so, Carlin not only denied writing it, but criticized it.
