Iconoclasts: A Working Definition

I am given to understand the comedian George Carlin died this last Sunday. I have absolutely no memories of any of his routines save for a vague recollection he did a bit called the Hippy-Dippy Weatherman on The Flip Wilson Show, but I understand he was supposed to be controversial, brash and iconoclastic, which, translated from media-speak, means he said absolutely nothing to contradict modern received opinion and instead focused on making fun of anyone who wasn't in the room at the time. In any case, it is a good and fitting thing to pray for the dead.
