Nice post! Great interview. I felt bad all over again, thinking of George’s death. I just love his take on life. Have you ever heard such honesty from a celebrity. The bullshit quota is quite low for Carlin.
This is my favorite quote from the interview:
“When you’re born in this world, you’re given a ticket to the freak show. And when you’re born in America, you get a front-row seat.”
