Now This Is A Sermon

The late great George Carlin.

"When you are born in this world you are given a ticket to a freak show. And when you're born in America, you get a front row seat."

Half of a sermon, anyway :)

I love George Carlin. His was the first celebrity death to really hit me (not the first of my life by a long shot, but the others were just 'oh, a person died')

Yeah, half a sermon.

There is something refreshing about people who tell the truth and don't hold back. We miss them when they go. I miss Molly Ivins, Kurt Vonnegut, and John Updike, too.

I love the comment he made about when you scratch a cynic you find a disappointed idealist. Absolutely! But it seems if there is one kind of person that is generally held in greater contempt than a cynic, it's an idealist.

Pffff! What a dreamer! Head in the clouds! Peace, love and understanding - right! GET A JOB!

And then they go back to making pancakes and scratching their balls with the newest cell phone.
