    Are You A Post Whore?

    Yes. I have long dreamed of getting to 300 posts. I daresay the number of my posts is the most important part of my life. Having accomplished my goal I shall retire from teh field for a celebratory coors light. Good day Gentlemen.

    Peace Activists In Iraq - Brave Or Barmy?

    With all the nastines that seems to be coming from Iran, I venture peace activists are pointless. I further posit a great quote from Tacitus, for only the most marginal of connected reason "Rome created a Desert and called it Peace."

    Bird Flu

    Isn't it mentioned in Wikipedia somewhere? Wikipedia is suppose to mention everything. He said no credible source.

    Fidel Castro

    I remember reading somewhere that everyone in his family, even the men, lived extremely long lives. THe DLC was right to avoid him this year.

    Oral Roberts

    The clever blurb underneath his name "all talk, no action" His wife said the same thing "He's named Oral"

    Ray Bradbury

    Typically people in wheelchairs are quite unable to stand. Usually, unless they try to pull off some stunt. Like' everybody gather round.. Look the old man is standing and is about to speak. In a situation such as this respect comes in many many forms. He looks decrepid(sp) though. It'll be him and Arthur C. Clarke and Studs Terkel, all right in a row.

    I wish I just had a portion of what he has spent on AIDS cure and I could retire! Have you ever considered defrauding the charitable? Start up a fake AIDS research charity and let the money pour in.

    World War I Veteran(s)

    I think it's a shame that they're suggesting a state funeral for the last one. Just think how you'd feel if you were the family of the 2nd to last one to die. It's a nice idea though. That's really the last link to an age when men were men and people who understood that we could use a man like herbert hoover again.

    U.S. Political Figures over 85

    the following is a rant from a person of souther extraction. please do not take it personaly, it is intended to be a general expression of upset-ness---- isn't it interesting how people feel free to poke fun at southerners, things that wouldn't be tolerated if aimed at another group. they wouldn't say that about gays, or blacks, or michigan-ers. not pc. my family is all from arkansas, texas, and louisianna. i have been in arizona most of my life, but still have a trace of an accent, and tend to use alot of southern expressions. i have been teased about it for years. one day i'm gonna knock somebody's cotton-pickin head right off. and you are supposed to put cole slaw on bbq sandwiches!! we return you now to you previously scheduled forum. I guess I should just stick with the people some southerners elect to represent them in DC...like Jesse Helms and Sen. Byrd and George W. Bush. Most of the Southerners I've met have been the nicest people whether they be well educated or not, and married to first cousins or not. Have I brought up my state's former governor, William Donald Schaeffer? He's 83 and currently serving as our Comptroller and is as nutty as ever. Not all too long ago, a young, female aide brought him a drink in the middle of a Dept. of Public Works meeting. After she walked away, he called her back and told her to walk away again so he could stare at her ass again. Yes it was caught on camera and was on CNN for a while. No real health problems to report with him (other than a fainting spell), just a screw or two loose. Schaefer's probably too obscure for DL. Plus, he's currently running for re-election. I don't think he's going to die all that soon.

    Not Exactly Famous...

    How about some of these people? Certainly not famous at all, but who'd've thought any are alive at all. http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c...MNGP5IAU4K6.DTL

    Are These People Dead?

    Well, I did look at Wiki, as well as groliers, biography, and whitehouse/history. No soap. These two women are seriously under the radar. Also, where did OoO find that name for Agnew?

    Near misses 2006

    Here's one for the British side of the floor: Sir Roy Denman, who negotiated Britain's entry into the precursor of the European Union, among much else. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/conte...6041401521.html

    Ideas and possibilities for 2007

    Mikhail Khodorkovsky - Russian oil tycoon, imprisoned for tax evasion and other white collar crimes in what some feel has been a conspiracy orchastrated by the Kremlin was attacked by another inmate. Perhaps people are out to get him. He might be a good pick for #50 next year...if someone is really trying to get him, eventually they'll succeed. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/conte...6041500426.html

    Fat enough for my list next year. He'll take B.B. King's place.

    Are These People Dead?

    Okay, I found this thread in the last pages and thought I'd appropriate it to aski: Does anyone know whether former socialites Judy Agnew and Joan Mondale are still alive?

    Well, he's got the money to afford world class health care and that makes the difference.

    With your high standards about post quality, I can't help but note this rare miss.

    Jake Lamotta

    No real reason. Just watched Raging Bull. If La Motta isn't looking good after a lifetime spent in sports, his brother is probably in worse condition. Although his brother probably never engaged in the high stress lifestyle like La Motta. He was just a spur of the moment suggestion. The post would've been better suited for the suggestions thread, but I was reading La Motta when it occurred to me.
