The center will salute Carlin at a tribute performance by former colleagues November 10th, which will be broadcast later on PBS.

Rat-shit, bat-shit, dirty old twat,
Sixty-nine assholes tied in a knot.

Hooray…

Lizard-shit…

Fuck!

    Two Americans writers who I admired maybe more than any others… and in many ways, their lives paralleled one another.

    both twain and carlin put on comic masks to crack wise on very serious social issues. I keep thinking of Twain, and all he had to say about the folly of the Army of Engineers claiming to be able to master the mighty Mississippi with earthen levees. Wonder what he’d have to say about New Orleans post Katrina and today’s “natural disaster” in the midwest.

    good question David–he is on Time this week too–Twain that is
