Comedy at the Library

George Carlin, who died Sunday had just been selected for the 2008 Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. The award has been given to eleven comedians who have made us look at American culture and human behavior with an unflinching eye. Both Carlin and Twain used humor to expose the hypocrisy of human behavior.
