    Clutching at straws, and risking being called a bad loser (i'm a very good loser, as I should be, the amount of practice I've had), but does ABD satisfy the 500-word Wikipedia entry criterion? It looks a very scant entry. @Dying Probably

    Thought André Maranne would be No.11. But Buydens bought it first. Then Norm. Then Dilip. Then a Girl Aloud. I’m now over double what the Official DL is at, ahead of my scores at the end of ‘17 and ‘18 and tied with ‘19. QR: 15 CS: 14 DL: 9 EDIT: Updated for Harding, Greaves

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/29/politics/bidens-carters-visit-georgia/index.html The Biden's visit to Carter is reminiscent of the Bush's visit to Gerald Ford in April of 2006, some eight months before his death. Despite ill health, president Ford and his wife Betty posed with a picture of the Bush's. In this case, only Mrs. Carter appeared with the Biden's in front of her home. I suspect he is not well.

    How do substitutes work? does Ben Ferencz launch into #11 position, or does everyone at positions 12 through 21 move up, so Ben Ferencz takes 21st position?

    Updated. Just two left now. Looking like Ronnie could very well be the last one... indestructible are the Stones. They must have made a pact with the devil or something. Some rather amusing stills of The Birds on this Aveleyman page for the 1966 film The Deadly Bees, in which all 5 of them appeared in.
