MM ~ My mother tends to forward me things. Some okay, some pretty bad. But yesterday was particularly galling.
It was a rant of "hurricane rules" purportedly by George Carlin. It read very ignorant and racist and assumed that everyone had the means to stockpile food, the money to get out, and/or was physically able to walk out.
The sickening refrain was "Don't blame our government!"
I have been a Carlin admirer for MANY years, since childhood, actually, and I'm looking down the barrell of my Cronedom now. And George did not say that. He is not a cheerleader for the "powers that be" by any means.
A quick googling got me this:

and you can also go to Carlin's own website:

So you can rest assured that George hasn't grown a brain tumor.
May the Universe ram this up the ass of the person who started it.
BB, Stella

Oh, I am so glad.... I thought the same thing when I first read it.
