    Have a small and tired update: Two people score with the late Julie Gibson obit. DDT gets two unique hits with al-Baghdadi and Edwin Bramall. Two more people had Gay Byrne. And I had previously missed to give drol points for Leah Bracknell, and Cpt. Chorizo for José José. I had updated the score in the meantime without posting here... so I am not 100% sure, but 99% sure that Ivan Milat is also a new hit, pushing Banana onto the podium, plus another hit for drol (and a couple others).

    I hope President Carter lives to be the first president to live to 100 although these recent health developments have me worried. I remember President Ford was pretty active and coherent in his eighties but suffered a few minor health issues that escalated and made him live his last years in decline. In the event I would be interested to know who would be speaking at Carter's funeral service. Because lets remember - he was in the world of Washington for four years almost forty years ago. The most powerful man in the world at the time but many of his contemporaries in politics are either also approaching their end (and I doubt there are more active 95 year olds out there) or they have passed on. Vice President Mondale will probably speak if he outlives him. I know for a fact he has a long friendship with Vice President Biden who spoke brilliantly at John McCain's funeral last year. But perhaps Biden's 2020 campaign will prevent him from speaking should Carter pass away before the election. because the spotlight would be on him rather than celebrating the life of Jimmy Carter.

    In July I made a list of famous hospitalized people. I think only 3 on 7 (Gigi Simoni, Everton Weekes, Balbir Singh) are still going. I think it is time for a new list: 1)Lata Mangeshkar (1929): on life support with pneumonia and heart failure. Family insists she is recovering and her life is not in danger. Hospital says she will be discharged in a few days. Usual Indian scheme. 2)Daniel arap Moi (1924): Hospitalized for the third time in a month. Was on life support two weeks ago and reportedly wanted to be left at home to die. Obviously according to the family he has gone for the usual "routine check up". 3)Jimmy Carter (1924): suffered fall and cerebral hemorrhage. Now hospitalized for indefinite time, but rapidly getting better according to close people. 4)Balbir Singh (1924): again in hospital, for the third time in a year. He spent two weeks on life support last year and is suffering from congestive heart failure. No hints at a possible death from family, though. 5)Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (1936): Peruvian crook/president, hospitalized for cardiac arrhythmia in ICU. The Fujimori way, all along.

    Technically of course, she's quite correct, at least in the case of the cash.

    A Monroe (Louisiana of course) woman was arrested recently after a police body search found both methamphetamine and a substantial amount of cash hidden in her vagina. Foxnews.com reports that 23-year-old Ashley Beth Rolland "was accused...of stealing $5,000 from the apartment of a man she'd been staying with for about a week. During a search of Rolland by a female sheriff's deputy, over six thousand dollars in cash and and a plastic bag containing approximately a gram of the illegal drug was discovered. According to the Sheriff's Office report, Rolland denied to deputies that the cash and meth were hers. SC

    What is important is that he didn't plan to eat the body. Moral standards of the human race are still high!

    In the standings (24 pts) yes. I had also updated the Nov table, but for the life of me, it somehow didn't get saved. So I just did it again and also included Joey Russ's new hit for 5. All should be well through Nov 13th.

    John Sitton's dressing room rant takes some beating. Love the bit at the end when he's inviting the players to have a fight with him. https://youtu.be/nYDIMWpcKqI
