Last night I saw the headline that George Carlin died. I always enjoyed his humor and witt, as did many other people.

Terry Gross on NPR's Fresh Air re-broadcast an old interview with George Carlin this morning, that his fans would enjoy listening to.

Here's the link to the podcast:

I adored George Carlin. The Seattle Times online has a great formal portrait of him.

Can anyone tell me what I need to install or turn on to watch and listen to such links. They start fine and then I get the buffering and it never resumes. I don't know what goes wrong or what is missing.

If it says it's buffering but never plays then it's most likely that your connection just sin't fast enough to support playing it.

He was one funny guy. A little rough on the language at times. The seven dwarfs joke he told on Johnny Carson is still funny. I remember the his list of dirty words you could not say on TV. Now they are heard just about every night!!
RIP

Amen to that. There was a cartoon on the editorial page of the Atlanta Journal and Constitution by Mike Luckovich that shows him at the Pearly Gates and he is saying ah, new material or something like that. I told myself I was going to remember it, but it has slipped the old mind. But, I can remember so many of George's routines! June
