Do you remember my friend Phil Davis? Phil was Professor Emeritus at the University of Michigan, a former Army pilot, former hotshot Detroit car photographer, and the inventor of Beyond The Zone System (BTZS). He died of cancer last year, and I wrote a eulogy of him on this site. (You don't need to go to the link to get the point of this post. Just remember his name.)
So anyway, when I heard that George Carlin had died, I went to YouTube to find a few of his old bits to enjoy. The very first one I ran across was this one. (If you want to spend the least amount of time, start at about the one minute mark and listen for about 45 seconds.)
You can imagine how startled I was.
Carlin always did have a strange ability to say things that were in peoples' heads, but that was a strange synchronicity.
I don't think Phil would have approved of George or his views in the slightest. God bless 'em both.
