RIP George Carlin

My favorite quote after reading the coverage of George Carlin, who died last week at age 71:

“Scratch any cynic,” he said, “and you’ll find a disappointed idealist.”

—New York Times obit,
Mel Watkins and Bruce Weber, June 24, 2008

My second-favorite George Carlin quote:

“Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.”
