George Carlin went into St. John's Health Center on Sunday afternoon, complaining of chest pain. He died at 5:55 p.m. PT.
Carlin was one of the icons of my generation. He constantly pushed the edge, and his routines contained some of the best social commentary around. While one of his pithier ones, his best known routine is Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television
(caution: definitely not safe for work), which my classmates had memorized shortly after it came out.
However, if you want more Carlin, there are a lot of other routines linked to the YouTube piece.
