| One of the top five Carlin specials
In this special he is still on his trek of going after the big topics in the world, some of his classic standards (i.e. fart jokes), little things with language, and of course a topic that never gets old, "Free-Floating Hostility", featuring some of the funniest lines Carlin has ever spoken. Even if you might not agree with all he says on the abortion issue early on, it's hard to argue that he isn't on the ball with his thoughts. In fact, one of the great pleasures of this special is how the first half-hour is all connected together, flowing from Abortion to Sanctity of Life into using Capital Punishment to balancing the budget, and then into what he calls "prison farms". This is for just a general fan of stand-up something that still gets better on repeated viewings (one line he has about people who wear different colored ribbons makes me grin whenever I think about it), and should be in any Carlin fan's collection.
