You know by now that George Carlin passed away Sunday at the age of 71. Despite his status as an icon of American stand-up comedy, his best work was playing Mr. Conductor on Shining Time Station alongside Thomas the Tank Engine.

That’s not meant to be snarky. It’s just that, like Cheech & Chong, Carlin was never quite as funny to me as he was to most everyone else.
