This is a few days late, I know, but I can't let it go, because George was my absolute favorite.
Like many my age, I used to sit around as a teenager listening to his LPs and getting high with my friends. We laughed and laughed and laughed and have not stopped laughing at (with) him for the quarter century that followed.
The thing that defined his comic genius (and all perfect comedy) was his ability to point out the obvious, call us all out on our hypocrisies and make us laugh at ourselves. There is no better teaching method than humor and I laughed myself all the way to enlightenment via his quirky wisdom.
He'll be sorely missed.
