Shit Happens!

Now before you go getting your back up, shit in Texas is NOT a curse word. It is actually about 3 syllables and is more like "shee eee t" I'm wondering if it is part of the 7 words that the Supreme Court fined George Carlin for using? If so, we're all going to hell. But, who cares?
I LOVED George Carlin just like I LOVED Tim Russert. Two people so different that it is laughable. But, they had one trait in common, if not more, they were their own people and lived life THEIR way! Loved both of them for that.
I saw George Carlin about 20 years or so ago at the Arena Theater in Houston - a small theater in the round. He did a routine about cats that had me laughing so hard, with tears streaming down my face, that whoever I was dating at the time, was mortally humiliated, I'm sure. The man was a genius with words and I never tired on his take on life. It was so skewed - I related, a lot.
So now two greats are gone.........whew, it's too darn much! The world will be a lot quieter and as "they" say, "The likes of those two will never be seen again".

No sheee-eee-it. It just won't be the same without Tim and George. Well said.
