    Alt Obituaries Deadpool

    Firstly, congratulations to Joey and WEP for Marian Cisovsky. It's a name I've had on long lists but never seriously considered. It's rare for me to play a hunch. Mostly I stick with the terminally ill and the occasional terrorist or stool-pigeon rapper. But I did play one this year. I had Benny Mardones in the Deadpool. He was sick (Parkinson's) but not acutely ill, at least not at the start of 2020. However, since he'd spent time in hospital in 2019, I just felt this would be his year. I suppose the proper way to phrase it is that I believed he'd be going 'Into the Night'. He's a solo, 13 points (8+5). Still much ground to make up, though.
