    Foreign Personalities, From Stage, Screen, Politics And Life

    A bad year for great actors. First Albert Finney, now Bruno Ganz. He starred in Eric Rohmer's "La marquise d'O". One of my favorite films. I wonder who will get the Iffland-Ring for the most significant and worthy actor of the German-speaking theatre now. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iffland-Ring

    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    Mary Higgins Clark is still alive. I wish her a long life, if she is healthy enough to enjoy it, but she's 91 & I enjoyed her novels & I'd like to mention her name...

    Bill Cosby

    Cosby is moved to the general population unit in Pennsylvania. He's legally blind & other inmates are assigned to help him. He considers himself a political prisoner like MLK & Nelson Mandela. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6679331/Bill-Cosby-81-moved-general-unit-Pennsylvania-prison.html

    Murder On The Orient Express Cast

    Such a great loss! I'm really sad. I enjoyed his performances as Hercule Poirot & Tom Jones. And I loved "Two for the road". He suffered from kidney cancer since 2011. His last years must have been difficult. Perhaps we will see how his former wife Anouk Aimee (born 1932) is doing these days. I hope she's healthy enough to come to his funeral.

    Hollywood Possibilities

    RIP. I remember especially her performance in westerns. "Bend of the river" (1952) was very good.

    Liam Neeson

    This chatterbox seems to be determined to commit career suicide, like Mel Gibson. https://www.thedailybeast.com/liam-neeson-says-he-considered-carrying-out-a-racist-murder-after-someone-close-to-him-was-raped

    Minimalists (and other classical composers/musicians)

    I wish to express my belated but heartfelt condolences to his family & his many fans who will miss his beautiful soundtracks. Ennio Morricone & Burt Bacharach (1928), Stephen Sondheim (1930), Jerry Herman (1931), Lalo Schifrin & John Williams (1932) are still alive.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    What a horrible way to die. Paid caretakers lock out a helpless old woman during freezing temperatures, and no one feels responsible.

    18. Betty White

    Got up early & discovered that Betty White will celebrate her 97th birthday on Thursday. Yesterday she stepped out for a stroll with a gentleman in Los Angeles. Last year she revealed that her secret to longevity was to "enjoy life". (Probably the best advice).

    Carol Channing

    RIP, my first hit of 2019! It's always sad when a truly entertaining person passes away, but she had a fullfilled life & reached a very high age.

    Political Frailty

    Anatoly Lukyanov, one of the August 1991 Soviet coup plotters died today. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anatoly_Lukyanov Former defense minister Dmitry Yazov is still alive. The last marshall of the Soviet Union is 94 & very deathlisty (imo). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dmitry_Yazov Oleg Baklanov ( born 1932) is also among the living. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oleg_Baklanov Aleksandr Tizyakov has not Wikipedia entry. In 2016 he was still alive though. https://www.rferl.org/a/what-happened-to-the-august-1991-coup-plotters/27933729.html

    The Deathlist Howto

    I have problems with the line spacing in my signature. Please, can someone tell me how I can remove the weird formatting, so that I don't need to hide my shadowlist in a spoiler? Thank you in advance.
