    Political Frailty

    If Arrington survives, probably not. If she dies, then you'd have to figure Sanford's political life would continue.

    Alt Obituaries Deadpool

    I would say you're probably right. Hulka usually does take them once a year. He sent out a e-mail to that effect in 2016 (his first year running the AO Deadpool) but not last year. If (when) Joe Jackson dies, that'll be one more with which he'll have to deal as I see gcreptile has the Jacksons' patriarch on his list.

    Journalists

    No reward. Searched for him in the Deathlist under 'Philip Bassett' and found nothing. Original poster only referred to him as 'Phil Bassett'. His death notices used his full name. Will make a mental note of the discrepancy.
