Today, one can hardly flip through cable channels without finding a stand-up comic using every curse word you've ever heard (and a number you haven't!). A few of them are actually funny...sometimes. They can do it because Robin Williams and Richard Pryor and George Carlin did it first. And THEY could do it because Lenny Bruce got in trouble for it. Lenny Bruce died in 1966...and George Carlin started growing his hair long.
