|Comedian tells how we've forgotten to live & love in age of throwaway morality

EDITOR'S NOTE: Making the rounds on the Internet is a seemingly unlikely but thought-provoking message from wrinkled and wizened funnyman George Carlin, a stand-up comedian and social critic who joked about drugs and sex in the 1960s and '70s but, as you can see for yourself, is serving up a different brand of humor and commentary today. The message that follows is popping up in e-mails and on Internet message boards nationwide. And when you read it, we think you'll agree that perhaps in the case of Mr. Carlin, the Lord truly does work in mysterious ways.

Last Tuesday, a large number of states held their Congressional primaries leading up to the November elections. For months, the conventional wisdom among pundits and prognosticators has been that the Republicans will lose control of the House of Representatives in Washington and could lose the Senate, as well. Six weeks is still an eternity in an election, but the trends afoot don't seem to back up the conventional wisdom. Can the Republicans still lose both the House and the Senate? Absolutely. Some critics outside of the Democratic circles would even argue that they should lose in order to be brought back to their senses, especially on fiscal issues.
