    The 10th Death of 2018

    I mean at this point is there some way to auto-vote for Wouk everytime a new poll goes up, until such time I'm actually right? It's been nearly 2 years...

    Political Frailty

    Seems to have been missed in the McCain mayhem - at least, couldn't find anything through the search bar - but former Republican member of the US House of Reps for Connecticut, Lawrence DeNardis, died on Aug 24th, at age 80.

    Aretha Franklin

    Honestly I think you just need to see how many people had her high up on their Inverse DP lists (me included) to see how few people thought that she would actually breathe her last this year.

    Inverse Dead Pool 2018

    Honestly I'd forgotten who I'd picked and where I'd placed them - given that apart from a few names, the list was basically pure guesswork with no research whatsoever, it was a good run, I guess!

    Political Frailty

    Former Speaker of the Indian Lok Sabha (lower house of Parliament) Somnath Chatterjee dead at 89. Was admitted to the hospital last Tuesday and put on the ventilatator yesterday, so that was relatively quick.

    Political Frailty

    Honestly, given the rumours that were floating around in the country when Jayalalitha dies, I wouldn't be surprised if he had died during the last scare and this was just an effort to control public chaos (of cours, with Jayalalitha, it woas both the public chaos thing and the allowing her aide to take over her political party thing...)

    Thoughts On The 2018 List

    Honestly, if we manage to get some of the bed warmers out this year (I'm looking at you Douglas and JPdC), I think we can count it as a success regardless of number of hits IMO.

    The 7th Death of 2018

    Wouk's day will come at some point. Well, given I've been voting for him since Jan 2017, probably it'll happen at least.
