On the 11th anniversary of his death we celebrate the political and cultural satire of the great comedian George Carlin. We focus on the last two decades of Carlin's long career--by which time his political views had moved well to the left of center.

Carlin is one of the most astute critics of capitalism, imperialism, and American arrogance--and certainly the funniest. He died on June 22, 2008.

This week's sketches:
1. They own you / the class system
2. Airport security / germs / parents
3. The Book Club
4. American B.S. / children

Thanks to Scooter, of "The innerSide" radio program (KPFT-FM, Houston), for some of the recorded material.

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "benign neglect") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
