    You're right again... This is the rule (word for word by CaptainChorizo): *Some name's may appear like a gray area(ie Roz Patterson). Notable in her Native Country as a reporter and would easily get a QO with a plane crash or auto accident type death. However if none of her QO obits mention her journalistic career and is just an angle about her being a Cancer Mum then no points will be awarded. Joey Russ... the rule is very clear.

    Thanks Perhaps and Grim Up North for the explanations... This is simply too complicated... It's a difficult choice... I guess I'll have to find my old math books.

    CaptainChorizo... I have one doubt in my mind... This rule of Windy City Deadpool: * Cancer Mum's/Athlete's Wives(IE Tiffany Youngs) and other Famous For Being Ill Types will not be accepted even if they get a qualifying Obit. All the news said: "Maria Menounos' mother, Litsa, has died after battling brain cancer"... or... "Maria Menounos announced that her mother, Litsa, died on Sunday after a long battle with brain cancer"... Then... Is Litsa Menounos... the only exception to that rule? And... Why? Hugs.
