  1. Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    Now that Sue Grafton has left for the mortuary one last time, maybe that wannabe writer Lawrence Block can follow suit. He is nearly 2 years older than Grafton was and his health just hasn't been the best since his near fatal fall some months back in which he cracked his hip, followed by less than successful surgery.
  2. 18. Bob Barker

    Oh am I back? How did I get here? Oh that's right, it's new year's eve and frozen solid outside so here I am. Must find the soon to be dead authors thread, I have a possible for it. (Or do they need to be truly, most sincerely dead first?)
  3. Our 2018 deathlist

    I figure to make my picks as they croak. It increases my odds of getting a full 50. Some might think that's a form of cheating, to which I'd possibly agree depending on which way the cake is tilting on the veranda.
  4. 18. Bob Barker

    Terrible is putting it nicely. Didn't tuck in his shirt, griping the wall for support and looks bored and annoyed. Surprised he didn't drop to the ground and start digging away to join his late love. (though she might not have stayed too well preserved in there....could have given home a deathly shock.) Disappointed he didn't do the gentlemanly thing and vanquish himself to eternity yet. Oh well.
  5. Ideas and Possibilities for 2019

    Hopefully Dick Van Dyke will kick off before then,but if not perhaps he could time his departure for the first day of 2019. ...and anyone still living from Keeping Up Appearances.
  6. The 15th death of 2017

    I decided to check off Bob Barker. I'm almost confident that he'll take another fall and crack his head, leading to an inevitable coma and his demise. He ruined life for many by abandoning The Price Is Right. Why just today our health secretary, Tom Price was forced to resign. Coincidence? Not likely. Besides, other people born on December 12 are already dead...and at younger ages.
  7. The Dead Of 2017

    Quite alive apparently, unlike many of the corpses which have been popping into crematoriums, funeral parlors and cemeteries this month. By the way folks, less than two days to my birthday--- September 31, be sure to mark it in on your calendar or car wax. Hope all of you are well as well.
  8. The Dead Of 2017

    Is there a dead boxers thread somewhere? If there is, then maybe a kindly...or even not so kindly moderator could move this there. Otherwise it can stay here... The Raging Bull, boxer Jake LaMotta is dead. Dead, dead, dead! He's dead, I said. He was 95. https:www.nytimes.com/2017/09/20/sports/jake-lamotta-dead.html Cause of knockout: Dysphagia pneumonia. Ring of knockout: Palm Garden Nursing Home in Miami, Florida, U.S.A.
  9. Law And Order

    Actually, quite the contrary. Mr.Scalia was an extremely intelligent man. He knew and understood the Constitution and that was how he formed an opinion and ruling. Even the more liberal minds of The Court found this to be the case. At any rate, he will be missed. May his replacement on the bench be at least half as fair-minded and wise.
  10. 25. George Bush Senior

    In late breaking news related to former President George H.W. Bush, it seems a one time rescuer of his from back in the days of World War 2 has succumbed to death. http://www.silive.com/obituaries/index.ssf/2015/11/staten_island_ferry_captain_micha.html In part it reads: "...Michael Hnatowicz, 92, a retired Staten Island Ferry Captain, World War II veteran and family man has died... ...served in the U.S. Navy during World War I I FROM 1941-1945...stationed aboard submarine USS Guavina in the South Pacific, and one of the crews primary tasks was to rescue pilots who had been shot down. One of those rescues was aviator George H.W. Bush, later 41st President of The United States. ...survived by his wife and 2 sons and 4 daughters..." As to the former President, he continues to live.
  11. The 14th Death Of 2015

    I was tempted to select George the first as he has been both physically and mentally off in the outfield lately. Then my remaining (occasionally delusional) common sense took hold and I selected Ken Kercheval. It just feels right.
  12. The Dead Of 2015

    Taken tragically too early! At least he seemed to have stayed busy up to the end, has some projects in the works so maybe he's only partly dead and not most sincerely dead.
  13. 20. Jimmy Carter

    Date taken. Do tell. Anyhow it matters not to me as I know that his departure will only be in body form, as his legacy shall remain, and those living in Habitat For Humanity homes will always recall him. So, is September 31, of 2016 still available?
  14. 1. Kirk Douglas

    There are a number of us that just plain don't believe in funerals. Seems like a huge amount of dollars to be shelled out for a quick service where somebody or a few folks dressed in their most somber attire, yammer on about how they respected, loved, nay...adored, the now deceased person in the casket. Meanwhile they hadn't had 3 good words to say on them in the last 40 years. Seems much more proper and honest to hit the memorial service a few weeks or months down the pike. There we find those who truly cared and will relate tales of the departed, both funny and sad and will even tell of feuds they may have had with the person who kicked off. If it's a good memorial service there'll be some vittles and liquid refreshments. And possibly even the corpse now in ash formation following a toasty cremation. Regarding Kirk, it surprises me each time I read or hear that he's still alive. It would be nice to have him hang on another five to ten years.
  15. Yogi Berra

    Far too young it seems for him to have caught his last game. I suppose Whitey Ford will be next........
