Despite a long history of heart trouble, it was still a surprise to hear of the death of comedian George Carlin. He performed as recently as last weekend, and still seemed sharp in television appearances.
Carlin was an intensely cerebral comic who used his old radio deejay skills to dissect the English language and American social institutions. His classic "Baseball vs. Football" routine is a prime example. Enjoy!
