    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    I have a feeling 14th place may pay off again this year. Here’s hoping.

    Wrong thread. From Cleric to Relic is what you’re after.

    Political Frailty

    US Senator from Georgia Johnny Isakson is resigning at the end of the year. He had a growth removed from his kidney, a fall breaking a few ribs, and his Parkinson’s is progressing. I doubt he sees 2021. https://www-m.cnn.com/2019/08/28/politics/johnny-isakson-retire/index.html?r=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnn.com%2F

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    I think his thread would’ve been a better choice.

    I always forget they’re three months ahead. Thank you Drol.

    The copy editor of that article needs to retake their math classes. He was only 82.

    Edward Kennedy/Curse of the Kennedys

    That’s Joan, Ted’s ex wife and a long time booze fiend. If true good for her bad for us, she definitely could have made the list some day.

    Political Frailty

    Long time New York District Attorney Robert Morgenthau dead at 99 ten days short of his 100th birthday. He was also the inspiration for Steven Hill’s character Adam Schiff in the original Law & Order. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/21/nyregion/robert-morgenthau-dead.html

    Sir Creep, That has happened to me twice now. Watch out as it happening once makes you more susceptible in the future.

    Hollywood Possibilities

    Agreed though I think “cult actor” is a peculiar description for him. He won at least one Emmy, was nominated for an Oscar if memory serves, and his career spanned something like 60 years. It’s like calling Harry Dean Stanton a cult actor.

    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    I’m more shocked to find out he’s still living, and I’m a bookseller.

    Not quite the oldest. That honor belongs to this guy: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/José_de_Jesús_Pimiento_Rodríguez Though the above was only named a Cardinal a few years ago there were others older than Sfeir up to that point.

    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    Larry McMurtry wrote Lonesome Dove. Brokeback Mountain was written by Annie Proulx. Spoke too soon. McMurtry did help adapt Proulx’s short story into a screenplay. Mea culpa. Though he is much more famous for Lonesome Dove which was turned into a mini-series.

    The President's Men

    No he was not indicted and I don’t believe he was ever implicated in any particular wrong doing in regard to Watergate. Point of interest, with the exception of Jean Kennedy Smith, there are now no living presidential siblings until George H. W. Bush’s.
