    Teri Garr

    She's been on my Top 50 list for at least a couple of years now. She's had MS for something like 40+ years, I think, without going back to look up the exact details. I think I remember that she first began feeling different on the set of Tootsie or something. I mean, that was a long-ass time ago.

    Sad news, he was a fixture on local morning TV here in the L.A. market on KTLA as an entertainment reporter. Didn't realize he was also featured on morning TV in the UK as well.

    Golf: The 19th Hole

    I missed this last week during the Masters coverage but came across it tonight. In this tribute video for Verne Lundquist, who worked his 40th and final Masters, notice at the 2:15 mark how Nicklaus' left hand/wrist is purple with what looks like senile purpura. We've seen this with a lot of older folks like Mitch McConnell recently. Perhaps he has some cardiovascular issues? Speaking of which, you see a purple spot on Lundquist's right hand at the 3:33 mark. Mr. Lundqvist is quite obese, so he may not be likely to see 90. I'm guessing that neither of them do, and I'm particularly concerned for Jack. (Jack is 84 and Verne is 83, for the record.)

    OK, perhaps not as gaunt!

    Golf: The 19th Hole

    Player looks absolutely fantastic. He's so into fitness that it's not much of a surprise. He looks and moves considerably better than Nicklaus. It looks to me like Jack has noticeably slipped in the last year or two. He's more overweight and he walks and moves a little less steadily. RoverAndOut is right, he walks to the tee partially on the arm of his wife, Barbara. I don't like the vibes I'm getting with him.

    Nah, Clint doesn't look gaunt like this.

    O.J. Simpson: Run Out Of Juice?

    I guess I was fucking wrong, wasn't I? On the bright side, his ex-wife's killer is now dead.

    Another outing in public, wearing the same clothes as last time. Still looks rough, but he's able to move around unaided. I suppose that's something when you're 94. Will still be going on my list next year if he makes it.

    23. Gene Hackman

    First time I've thought this: he has to go on my list next year if he makes it. He's looking VERY gaunt now. In those pics of him coming out of the convenience store, look at his right arm below the elbow. It's like skeletal. And the discoloration not only on his hands/wrists/arms but his face too. I suppose it's good that he can still stand on his own, albeit with the cane and his wife's assistance coming down those steps at the restaurant, but he does not look like a healthy person here, not even at his age. But I know, he's 94. He's alive and that's better than the alternative, I suppose, as long as he's not suffering.

    Bruce Willis

    I'm very happy to see this, as he doesn't look like a man in his final days here. Plus he looks, dare I say, lucid and happy. Good on his family for being so supportive, including his ex-wife. I'd be quite glad to not get him as a hit this year.

    Joan Collins ultra glamorous British actress and Hollywood star

    Truly, I don't get any negative comments about her appearance. She still looks excellent for her age, and she doesn't look too fat nor too thin/gaunt, either. She also doesn't look like one of those old celebrities who have had so much plastic surgery that they appear to be rubber-faced lizard people. May she live another decade, at least!

    Joe Biden

    Phillips officially dropped out and endorsed Biden, just for the record. Getting to my main point, discussion about Biden dropping dead amuses me...when it's Trump who is his opponent! Some of y'all act like Trump is this picture of youthful vigor. He's almost 80 himself, is clearly in cognitive decline himself (the speech gaffes are piling up), and he's also an obese tub of shit. Perhaps Biden will die first, sure, but Trump's odds have to be right there with him.

    American Football Players

    Yeah, just a total miss on my part. Even knew he had stepped aside after the draft last year to "focus on his health", and I should have made the connection that this was 7 years after his stage 4 diagnosis. I should have made a notation that he was 2024 material. Especially as much as I watch football coverage. He was a pioneer in the business and from every account I've seen, just a wonderful human being. Cancer sucks.
