I know he had some miles on him but I was a little surprised to hear he was 71.   Definantly some cutting edge stuff and pushed the envelope for many years.

That's what I was thinking.  I would have guessed mid 50's

I knew he was older than I am (I am mid 50s, but I don't admit it) and the first Carlin album I got was FM and AM, and that was like when I was a senior in HS, IIRC. I kind of assumed he was 30-ish back then. If he was born in 1937, that comes out about right.

Let's put our profanity filter to the test with his seven 'words'...  |expletive|, upset, |expletive|, |expletive|, Cocksucker, |expletive|, Tits .

Heh heh... 2 out of 7... I guess that's progress for you.

With all the |expletive| |expletive| we have received over the blockage of Hancock and cocktails to our dismay we now allow cocksucker - now tits is something different. We love tits on eOmahaForums - the more the merrier.

I should delete myself now. Well maybe tomorrow.

PhpBB 3.0 allows each user to decide if they want word censors on or off.  It's a setting in each users profile.  Add that to the reasons why an upgrade should be considered one day....

I couldn't agree more. :;):  I chuckled out loud, it's not something you expect to read everyday.  It's almost the same feeling as if you heard a priest say sh*t :)

Ms. Big E guessed Cosby, too.  My vote is on BB King.

I hope it isn't Cosby because we have tickets to see him at the Orpheum in March.

Don LaFontaine 1940-2008

You may not recognize the name, but you surely will his voice. Don was famous for being the voiceover of about 5000 movie trailers. He died Monday from a collapsed lung.

With his ability to sound just like him, looks like Pablo Francisco could have some more work coming up.  Sad way to get it, though.

I saw Carlin's last performance in Omaha.  He explained the delay and how heart failure works.  Interesting stuff.  Great loss for comedy.

Now.. as far as Bernie making his way into this thread.. I'm sorry that he died - that sucks.. but I hated his work.

As far as Isaac.. well.. guess Scientology didn't really do that much for him.

Steve Brown, 68, was a local radio pioneer

http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_page=2 ... d=10514759

SUSAN SZALEWSKI WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER wrote:KFAB radio talk show host Steve Brown died suddenly over the weekend, apparently as he was preparing for his Saturday afternoon show, the station's program director said.

Brown was an Omaha radio pioneer, program director Gary Sadlemyer said. Brown was national program director for station KOIL and its Star Stations affiliates across the country in the 1960s and '70s when the Top 40 format was popular. In the 1980s, he helped bring the talk show format to Omaha when he worked for the new KKAR station.

So, should we rename this thread "Celebrity Deaths"?
