    Yes. Yes, he is. Thank you for this wonderful information. :rolleyes:

    That being said, he will be in Atlantic City in December. I am really contemplating going.

    George is a funny, insightful man. I love how he illuminates the absurdity and stupidity in everyday situations.
    One of my all-time favorites.

    I'm with you, Carlin has awakened a new found appreciation (so to speak) of euphemisms. :)

    He's got a HBO special (live) coming on November 5th - Life is Worth Losing

    You guys should check out his book Napalm & Silly Putty but I highly suggest getting the book on tape version. The skit on using violence to sell stuff is hilarious!!!

    I'm currently reading Napalm and Silly Putty and can't wait for his special on HBO this weekend. The man's a genius.

    That was such a kick ass show. Wasn't the first episode something about how he had to (or decided to) cut off his pony tail?
