    Shadow Lists

    Debating on DeathList can be mildly amusing, but ultimately meaningless.

    Well I suppose that you do have to be of a certain age to recognise Mary Lee and the Roy Fox band

    The point of the Shadow List is to try and pick the sort of names that the Committee might pick. ????????????????? I’m not entirely certain that this makes any sense whatsoever. Perhaps someone from ‘The Committee’ might want to clarify this thought. And what constitutes an ‘Anomaly’. If you’re trying to suggest that many followers of DeatLiist should give up creating Shadow lists and simply go away I think you’re getting close to that point.

    Quite agree with COMPARABLE. Concerning the two names that Ulitzer95 highlighted: Ted Luscombe obituary was published in The Times, Francis Jackson obituary in The Guardian. Are obituaries in these newspapers DL worthy? And please recognise that the ‘perspective’ that I was referring to was that of Ulitzer95 in making their observations.

    Well, DL level I’d back my Ted Luscombe against your Gail Halvorsen any day. But more broadly what on earth do you think the POINT is?

    Really. Easy to make such a bland comment. It does all rather depend upon your perspective; your own background concerning who ‘notable’ and important people are.

    The Dead of 2022

    David McCullough dead at 89. A distinguished author, historian, film maker and narrator. My memory of him is always as the narrator of The Civil War by Ken Burns. For me one of the finest tv documentary series of all time.

    Bernard Cribbins

    There is one sad and pressing logic for Bernard to have been included by the committee (and others) on this years list. His lifelong partner Gillian McBarnet died last year after they had been married for 66 years (m 1955). It is not at all uncommon for men of Bernard’s age to rapidly decline from good health and die within a short period of time following the death of their wife; such likelihood being increased by their having no children. I shall miss Bernard, he has been a most loved presence in my life for many years.

    Well at least the committee got this one right .... yes, he's on the list ...... Oh, he isn''t? Paul Bearer says he ISN'T on the list? Oh good grief! Not going too well for the committee at the moment ........ 4
