I Enjoy That

For centuries now, man has done everything he can to destroy, defile, and interfere with nature: clear-cutting forests, strip-mining mountains, poisoning the atmosphere, over-fishing the oceans, polluting the rivers and lakes, destroying wetlands and aquifers... so when nature strikes back, and smacks him on the head and kicks him in the nuts, I enjoy that. I have absolutely no sympathy for human beings whatsoever. None. And no matter what kind of problem humans are facing, whether it's natural or man-made, I always hope it gets worse.

--George Carlin

Been on a Carlin kick recently, re-visiting my past... much like Magic Johnson was the player's player, Carlin's the comedian's comedian. Just past 70 now [!!!], I recently saw one of his HBO specials, and dude's sharper than ever. What an American treasure. Love him.
