I hate George Carlin, and I'm pregnant
George Carlin is like Bush: he makes fun of things that are absolutely valid and true, such as, in this case- playing Mozart to developing fetuses. It's like denying global warming. It's been proven that children recognize music they hear when they are in the womb. So, particularly by playing Mozart, who is probably the greatest classical tonal genius who ever lived, it is very reasonable to expect that a child will have a heightened understanding/ head start in the area of music. George Carlin makes fun of Mozart because he speaks to an uneducated, dismissive audience that likes to make fun of what they do not understand. I don't like him, but he's a fairly good marketer. Like Bush.
