Please. please, please don't let this one be true:

ET breaks the news that comedian George Carlin has died from heart failure. The man who made famous the "seven words you can never say on television" passed away at 5:55 p.m. Sunday at Saint John's Hospital in Santa Monica, his longtime publicist said. He was 71.

Carlin, who has had several heart attacks and a history of cardiac issues, went into the hospital this afternoon after complaining of heart problems.

Carlin has more than 20 comedy albums, 14 HBO specials, numerous TV and movie roles, and three best-selling books to his credit. Last year, he celebrated his 50th year in show business, and he had just finished his last HBO special in March, "It's Bad for Ya."

That is just so sad. I've always loved his stuff, it was so on-target.

It's breaking everywhere now. If you click on the link I provided it should be updated with the most recent info.

This makes my last post from a couple hours ago seem inconsequential.

I need some cheering up now *cries*

No way! I hadn't heard about this!

I remember back in the day when he took over from Ringo Starr as Mr. Conductor on Shining Time Station! Do you guys remember that? He was the most random choice, but he was awesome!

He will be missed. One of the funniest people ever to have lived.
