    1. Jimmy Carter

    We misunderstood Jason Carter. When he said his grandpa sleeps all day, he dropped out a key word. He meant to say, he sleeps AROUND all day. Good old Jimmy is too busy with that to have time to visit the kids.

    9. Noam Chomsky

    Just since I've been here, it kind of reminds me of Shane MacGowan. He's being sent home with his wife and everyone thought that meant he was getting better. Turns out he just wanted to die at home, don't blame him.

    The World of the Snowflake

    I guess self deprecation is a virtue now? https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/article/2024/jun/03/getting-fit-could-turn-you-into-a-rightwing-jerk

    Who are the immortals?

    Wrestler Aurelian Smith Jr, AKA Jake "The Snake" Roberts, has so many health issues that it has it's own lengthy subsection in his Wikipedia article.

    Jason Carter interviewed again. So make of his remarks what you will. On his grandfather "No change really" and "Isn't awake every day" https://www.southernliving.com/jimmy-carter-update-grandson-jason-carter-plains-8660173

    2. Dick Van Dyke

    Here is the full interview, referenced in the post above by Comped. He seems fine, still very upbeat, and is staying physically active. I think anyone is going to have at least some mild short term memory loss at 98. Not the worst DL pick though, I plan on keeping him on my shadowlists from here on simply due to actuarial odds at that age. https://www.forbes.com/sites/jeffconway/2024/05/29/dick-van-dyke-reflects-on-his-beloved-career-i-am-so-happy-that-i-picked-the-work-that-i-did/?sh=4f2358363528

    https://www.centuryofcarter.com/ You can sign him a card, not that he will likely ever see it.

    The Death Penalty

    That's an argument for much more careful dispensation of the death penalty, no doubt about it. The utmost and extreme standards of proof even. But there's no reason to keep living someone like say, Ted Bundy, or John Wayne Gacy.

    Dick Truly Dead is probably something you don't want to hear except on this forum!

    1. Jimmy Carter

    Posting obsessively isn't going to speed up, or slow down, his ultimate demise, you creepy weirdo. Let us know when you have something useful to tell us. As Abraham Lincoln probably didn't say "better to stay silent and be thought a fool than to speak up and remove all doubt."

    Donald J Trump

    Court denies Donald Trump's bid to pause $454m penalty in civil fraud case "Mr Trump's lawyers had argued he would "suffer irreparable harm" if forced to pay the entire sum and that he was prepared to post a $100m (£79m) bond. The judge did pause a three-year ban on him seeking loans from New York banks - which could help him secure the bond."

    Better hope he doesn't actually die while that happens!

    Elon Musk

    I don't see this ending very well if it's true. I guess we can't know for sure but I'd put money on it, given some telltale signs he's giving off. Musk is not the type of guy who is going to have anyone around him to tell him "no" or "stop", and he's not listening to anyone who would say that to him anyway. His gigantic ego and hard drug use are on a collision course. Former Tesla director Larry Ellison invited Elon Musk to Hawaii to 'dry out' from drugs, report says

    Ideas and possibilities for 2025

    Donald Trump, the other one. He might be worth someone scooping up for a "same name" type DDP theme team. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_L._Trump
