An alpha male on beta blockers - The genius of George Carlin

An acknowledgment of a great comedian - George Carlin.

George Carlin died today. That is just sad news. George Carlin was my first politically incorrect comedian. Sure there have been others in my lifetime, but you never forget your first swearing, BS-exposing comedian. You never forget the first belly laugh brought on by a smart person questioning authority with humorous, sardonic precision.

George Carlin was my first and I will miss him greatly.
