George Carlin has actually died twice for me. My ex-wife's brother told us he was dead in 1995 and it took a few weeks for me to figure out that he was still alive. The internet has solved these kinds of confusions.

He was a big part of my youth (the first comedian other than Steve Martin that I knew about). As an adult, I felt that he was much more of a funny philosopher than a comedan and truly appreciated his brilliance. I too will miss him.
