    The 2nd Death of 2015

    It's got to be Sam.

    The 1st Death Of 2015

    I'll go with the only one that I'm aware of having recently vomited blood (Thank you twitter for an image I could do without).,,,,Sam Simon

    He is a huge football fan. My guess is that the fact that he did not tweet during the Super Bowl means he is real trouble or high off his ass because he is in real trouble. February 24th.

    Old age is bad for you.. I'm going to take up smoking at 80. I'm not sure that I'll really enjoy years 80 plus unless I have a hobby.

    I was half expecting that, bless you. Thing is, no matter how much you talk me up, I still only get about 15 out 50. It would be a fluke to have more that say 25 out of 50 and damn near impossible to approach the 50 unless some mega programme were built to crunch the numbers with such accuracy that left no power to keep the lights on. Oooo I love it when you start talking numbers! I think that 25 is nearly impossible, especially with the level of fame that the Committee members use. In the pool that I am in where you pick 68 names (with similar fame thresholds), the record is 27 hits and that is for all entries since 1972. You could maybe get near 25 if you made the list of anyone that will get an Obit (so the DDP rules). Although a list of 50 Kate Grangers would not be very interesting.

    I'm amazed that you get it done so quickly. Well done. I would have it up sometime in March if I organized.

    I don't know him at all but in reading his posts I went from 1) liking him as a creative guy who won't let people tell him what to think (I like that he is Vegan that loves MMA and boxing); to 2) disliking him for his preachy, I'm better than you nonsense. "I will give everything away to PETA and anti-whaling ships" It has been brought up that he could give money to AIDS or hunger or pediatric cancer but in fairness it is his money so he can do what he wants with it. My opinion is that he is a smart guy and that he knows that he will get more run out of PETA then if he donated it to a cancer charity. They are naming a ship after him that rams into whale ships; isn't that more exciting to track than an Ebola hospital; and then finally 3) realize that he is a scared guy that is the same as anyone else. The fact that he is making a point of saying that he hasn't watched the Simpson's in 20 years should about cover it. Why would you disavow what most would consider to be your most memorable creation unless you were really scared. I'd be scared to. I wish him well on his journey.

    I like this pick because I think that this site gets hung up talking about the same stuff. Live long and prosper I guess.

    I get the impression that his wife wandered him off... "an attorney for the ailing radio personality's wife said the former "Top 40" host had been removed from the country" Maybe it was the "Creeper".

    Did you make a ruling on Jack Ramsay? He doesn't appear in the scoring or the list of the lost. Looks like his death has been acknowledged on yahoo UK a couple of times. Not sure if that is enough.
