I didn’t always agree with him, but I didn’t have to.
Carlin was a Fool-with-a-capital-F in a court of errant knights. No matter the greatness of his fanbase, I think his scope of his influence can only be underestimated.
Many people preached the message, but it was Carlin that drove it home: laughter disempowers and breaks down tragedy into comedic, digestible pieces.
Most celebrities don’t even blip my radar, but he will be sincerely mourned.
Warning: Carlin language ahead.
