Carlin given Mark Twain Prize, Posthumously
Watching this week's Daily Shows on DVR last night, I saw during the Richard Belzer interview that that George Carlin was given the Kennedy Center's Mark Twain prize posthumously November 10th. I've always loved Carlin's work, and never understood people who didn't at least like him. The previous winners are all pretty funny people - Richard Pryor and George being the two funniest, in their own, poignant, insightful, inimitable ways. Carlin did hear about being given the prize, days before he died last June. I'll sure miss him.
