Can You Say the Seven Dirty Words in Heaven?
As we all know, high-profile deaths tend to come in threes. Last week, Tim Russert collapsed while working at the NBC studios. Today, we learned that George Carlin died of heart failure.
We know it was a rough primary season, but what the hell is going on here?
It’s a creepy coincidence that two men who were both celebrated as giants in media died within a week of each other from heart conditions. Both made their mark by challenging perceptions. While Russert took on politicians, Carlin went after “decency” laws and morality with his stand-up routine.
