From the HBO special "It's Bad for Ya" (March 2008...4 months before George died from heart failure).
George had a full, satisfying life, free from the trappings of mindless religious dogma, and corporate\political brainwashing. Millions loved him not just because he made them laugh, but also because he made them THINK! His memory and legacy continue.
I'm sure George would be happy as hell to know his words are still pissing-off self-righteous/ignorant pricks out there :-)
