I'm thinking of perhaps making such announcements a regular occurrence... death, and those we lose to it, holds some-what of a fascination for me.

Never-the-less, i'm late on this one, yet again. I did hear about it on the day... discussed it with a few who were around at the time, but none who were particularly interested nor knew who the hell i was on about. Shame.

George Denis Patrick Carlin - (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008)

"I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is and to cross it deliberately..."

Although the Guardian surprisingly failed at writing an obituary, here's one from the Independent.

I hope Georges fascination with death has delivered in spades. Sorry for the terrible pun there man. I actually personally wished i had of wrote you that letter. I really wanted to know... how did you do it? To keep coming back with such cutting material, a new man, as it were, completely in tune with the modern world. The lows you must have gone through... the internal structural renovation of your mind. May i pay tribute to you in a time honoured fashion... mimicry. (!)
