Carlin's "Soft Language" Bit

This is brilliant: it's Carlin discussing how language has evolved to in order for "smug, greedy, well-fed white people have invented a language to conceal their sins." I guess this sort of follows my theory that comedians have become the cultural critics we needed all along. Carlin, especially, was the master of this, taking on all kind of subjects no matter how much hot water he ended up in.

"Hot water" ? Carlin would probably prefer I said "shit."
