George Carlin

The quintessential New Yorker, George Carlin, passed away on Sunday at the age of 71. Always one to tell it like he saw it, Carlin made judicial history in the 1970's after he was arrested for the above act. A NYC radio station later aired the Seven Dirty Words You Can't Say on Television and the Supreme Court of the United States set the standards for decency on the airwaves based on a complaint from an outraged listener. The seven words we'd use to describe George Carlin are: hilarious, brilliant, kind, moral, aware, influential and unforgettable. Rest in peace, Mr. Carlin.
