I was so sorry to hear of the passing of George Carlin. He was undoubtedly my favorite commedian. My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. I have a lot of his tapes, and was able to see him in person a few times. Great entertainer and person.
Also, to Scott Kalitta's family and friends. He was a fantastic top fuel and funny car driver and it came to an end doing what he loved to do. His qualifying run would have put him in the field.
