I grew up with George Carlin in the back ground. I also grew up in a very religious household which left me conflicted. I had a sense of what Carlin was about was true besides being super funny. The problem was his vulgarity really rattled my cage at the time. I know now he was not only rattling the cage but he was offering us the key do get the fuck out. We are so in need of a good laugh some times.
I have spent some time this morning listening to interviews and performance clips on line this morning and I feel moved by his story and sincerity. I share this with you here for what it is worth.
