    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

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

    Yes and Peter Falk has Alzheimer’s.

    The Cardinals Of The Roman Catholic Church

    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.

    The Cardinals Of The Roman Catholic Church

    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.

    34. Vanessa Redgrave

    Agreed. Definitely Jane Goodall.

    Wrong thread. This belongs in Cleric or Relic. This guy is neither a Cardinal nor Catholic.

    Political Frailty

    You beat me to it. Wofford’s death brings the number of living former U.S. senators that served in World War II down to five. Some of them are famous in their own right. Hollings (SC) - 97 Oldest living former senator Buckley (NY) - 96 Brother of William F. Buckley and one of the few successful third party senatorial candidates Dole (KS) - 96 Presidental nominee ‘96 VP nominee ‘76 Evans (WA) - 93 Warner (VA) - 92 Last living husband of Elizabeth Taylor
