    Big Brother

    Questing is of course, are they of Grahame herself, or have they just used generic pictures of a bad anorexia case from Google?

    Big Brother

    Those pictures are shocking.

    World's Oldest

    I wonder what's keeping her so lucid. She has a bit of the "I like to fuck on the first date" look about her.

    Political Frailty

    David Wolfson, Baron Wolfson of Sunningdale (wiki), Conservative life peer and businessman, dead at 85 after a battle with dementia. Member of the House of Lords from 1991 to 2017. Also of note, Chairman of Next plc. from 1990 to 1998. Times obit.

    University Presidents?

    There doesn't need to be when in 100% of cases they can be covered elsewhere by what they're primarily known for. So Stephen Fry in comedians or Hollywood possibilities... or his own thread when the time comes for him to have one (if he doesn't already have one because of his manic depression/obesity).

    University Presidents?

    Agreed. ”Arrogant Academics and Past-it Presidents”? ”Arrogant Academics and Egotistical Education Administrators”?

    University Presidents?

    Polkinghorne is a huge death in the academic world. Also a Templeton Prize winner. Don't we have a list for that somewhere? Think it was from before my time but sure I've read it on DL before.

    African Despots

    Manuel Saturnino da Costa (wiki), PM of Guinea-Bissau from 1994 to 1997, dead at 78. This means we had an African leader triple yesterday. Some say the "deaths happen in threes" thing is nonsense, but they sure do happen often enough round here.

    From Cleric To Relic

    Ah. I don’t read any of the deadpool threads on here (except the DDP one). Sure I’m not alone.

    Broadway - "the Great White Way"

    Carmel Quinn (wiki), Irish entertainer on Broadway, U.S. television and radio, dead at 95. A DDP pick.

    Jerry Lee Lewis

    They likely confused him with Tub-a-shite Jerry Falwell or Oral Roberts. Oh how we don't miss them.

    No need to apologise! I think most people outside the States are conscious of the fact that Hollywood types and their shenanigans (Bill Cosby, Mel Gibson, Felicity Huffman, Kevin Spacey, Markle et al.) are not representative of the wider U.S. population, the majority of whom I will add are very good hearted people whose company is an absolute pleasure.

    Shit's certainly hitting the fan down in Africa today. Hasa Diga Eebowai!

    People Who Are Dead According To Wikipedia...

    It was taken off of Wiki for a while but Aveleyman and IMDb are now going with it. It's almost certainly true. If you click the "geolocate" on the IP who made the original edit, it shows they're based in Antioch, California. If you go to Clustrmaps and looking up "Martin Brill" then there's about a dozen results, one of them being an 88 year old man who lives in Antioch, California. Brill was another from the Mary Taylor Moore Show cast then, and also the Ed Sullivan Show. Off radar. Hollywood Reporter, where are ya?

    Tuskegee Airmen

    I think this page was ill conceived, thought with the best of intentions, when it was set up. I believe the Tuskegees still existed by the end of the late 40s so it's likely there are 100s still about!

    Opera

    Renée Doria (wiki), French operatic soprano, has died less than a month after turning 100.

    Silent Era People

    As long suspected (and reported on noticeboards before without any evidence) Silas Hathaway IS dead. He died in 2017 aged 97 or 98 so didn't make the centenary in 2019. Someone explains it on this Voy page, with supporting evidence attached. So there are just three silent era actors alive now – Kornman and the two Watson brothers.

    People Who Are Dead According To Wikipedia...

    Yes, 1911 a little stronger. Fauja (though yes, he's an annoying one. I don't like fraudulent cases), the other three you already mentioned and there's also former Costan Rican First Lady Marita Camacho Quiros (who doesn't have a Wiki page to my knowledge which is why you may have missed her. @arghton mentioned her earlier as she turns 110 tomorrow. 1912 – there's 4 to my knowledge. Jessie Lichauco, Dagny Carlsson, Louise Horne and Draja Mickaharic. Mickaharic had a Wiki page a few years back then it was deleted for lack of sources. I had strong doubts that he was still alive then I checked Facebook last month where there are other spiritual/psychic authors claiming that he's still alive and they reference his upcoming 109th birthday in April. I have wondered if they actually know that or if he's just died off radar and they assume he's alive. I have one of his books in my house (and no I don't practice witchcraft or magic, but I do find the history and context of it fascinating!).

    Indian writer G. Venkatasubbiah (wiki) and American Pulitzer Prize-winning journo Vance Trimble (wiki) are still alive. That's it though I believe. The three 1913 amigos. I tend to agree with @drol, Venkatasubbiah will probably be the last. Though Pahor is still a media staple...

    The Dead of 2021

    What is the point in reading it twice? If you want a complete list of Deaths in 2021, there’s a Wiki page for that Toast.
