    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    A lot of the early entries are theme teams and the long-term-but-casual players. Don't really expect to see any patterns emerge in terms of most popular picks until my true love brings five gold rings.

    Best ever month for celebrity deaths

    April 1946 gave us Alf Common, John Maynard Keynes and Lionel Atwill, which is some big duty bang-for-your-buck.

    Deathless Days

    And around 9:30, that calm was broken by the death of the woman who translated Harry Potter in Portuguese.

    The Dead of 2018

    12 years later, then man in question who received the seal of approval from both Canadian Paul and Osama Bin Laden, William Blum, has died aged 85. He may have come up in some of your recent research due to dialysis issues.

    Imagine spending 60 years telling everyone how economics works, and then getting defrauded by a woman who spent your life's fortune on a burial for her Pomeranian.

    Contra Mundum

    "Globally known Irish sports star" accused of rape in a Dublin hotel? Daily Mail write-up makes sure we're aware he's capable of violent assault? Hmmm.

    Samuel Brittan, former economics editor at The Observer and then a long-time FT columnist, isn't doing too well from what I understand...

    Entries are coming in at a nice speed. Nothing to match the weirdness of last year when Pat Cooper was in two of the first three teams submitted and none of the remaining 500.
