    This was the latter, unmistakably.

      Before he died his performance was like "Fuck you all, I've wasted my life on you idiots."  So often, there's a definite change in personality that happens in the last two years of life.

      •  I wouldn't use Carlin's performance style (0+ / 0-)

        as a gauge of his personality having changed.  I'd want to know how he behaved in personal interactions.

        There is indeed sometimes a profound shift in personality during the end of someone's life.  That doesn't seem likely for this lady at age 69, though.

      •  I used to work with elders. That is not my (5+ / 0-)

        experience if they are healthy. Quite a sweeping statement
        "so oten there is a change...in the last two yrs of life".

        I guess if you have health problems or some sort of dementia. But age itself is not causal just correlated sometimes.

        Repeated heart surgeries, and then substance abuse. He wasn't all that old when he died.

          Something like 15% of heart surgery patients have some sort of "event" that can leave them with amnesia, personality change, and impaired functioning that can last months.

          Also, prescription pain killers create exactly the sort of braying "mean drunk" personality that is sort of a Republican stereotype like Rush Limbaugh.  Everyone is "stupid," everything is "hysterical," they keep going back to ancient grudges because they have no short term memory, and they keep laughing at their own dumb comments for the millionth time.  That's what that hillbilly heroin does.
