What in the world joes George Carlin have to do with the conversation? Please just stop @Lord Tyrannus. You are really starting to get on my nerves. Comment on this thread again in an inapropriate manner and I will report you and close this thread. Anyway. In ANH, Tarking makes a comment that surely Kenobi was dead by now. It seamed to me that no one thought him or Yoda were still alive. I think this just supports the idea that Bail had to be in some sort of contact for those 18 years.
