The world lost one of the great comedians this week with the death of George Carlin. There was a time in my youth when I could have recited every line from his AM/FM album, nearly wearing out the vinyl from playing so much.

His comedy not only made you laugh, it also made you think about why we have these quirky human behaviors. It was his brand of humor that looked at the everyday things from a different angle that most influences me to this date. I’m keenly aware of things having more than one way to look at them because of George. It also gave me a greater understanding of why we need to see the other side, both good and bad, and to never let the government tell you otherwise.

Thanks for the laughs and insights George. RIP Rufus!
