    Deathlist 2005

    Good list. I see that Pervez Musharraf and Clive Dunn didn't make it to the list, but that Hamid Karzai did. A fitting job description for Liz Taylor, too. Oh, and a happy 2005 to all. regards, Hein

    Dead Losses (2004)

    OTOH, being shot rarely only results in a flesh wound, despite what's shown in the cinema. But then, duels were not fought with high powered rifles. regards, Hein

    Lord Scarman

    DeathList's second best performance ever, and there are a few days left in the year.... BTW: it seems Britain lost a good man in Lord Scarman. regards, Hein

    More Ideas & Possibles for 2005

    Another oldie I thought was already dead, but isn't: General Vo Nguyen Giap, of Vietnam War fame. Born in 1912, he's in his nineties. I've no idea about his health, though, but he could make a nice outsider. regards, Hein

    Prince Bernhard Of The Netherlands

    It's getting draughty in the vault of Delft's New Church. regards, Hein

    Prince Bernhard Of The Netherlands

    News broke tonight on Dutch TV that Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands suffers from cancer of the respiratory tracts, apparently unoperable. It looks the English language news bureaus haven't picked it up yet. It seems like a good boost for his candidacy for 2005, at 93 years. regards, Hein

    Arafat's (Inevitable) Death

    An aide of Arafat says his illness is not fatal, according to this BBC news article. I remember several heads of state whose expected demise was denied untill (and after) death, but I do hope old Yasser keeps on breathing another few months. I can't help thinking many Palestinian politicians who aspire to become Arafat's successor do the same. regards, Hein

    Alex Ferguson

    That's also possible, ranting is serious business after all, if pointless. I apologise for a silly joke, the kind computer programmers make when confronted with a logical 'or' question. regards, Hein

    Miep Gies

    I suppose she is. She's in her nineties, and I think I remember a TV thingy about her health deteriorating. Will she pass the famousness test, however? regards, Hein

    Pope John Paul

    It seems to me JPII is working hard at meeting his maker. According to this BBC article he Dutch television news sources say he made a remark that he suffers from physical discomfort. Go, Johnny, go! regards, Hein

    Derby Dead Pool 2004

    Well, it looks Fay Wray got Deathlist.net back at the no. 1 spot in the Derby Death Pool. It's a shame Red Adair wasn't included. regards, Hein

    Dead Losses (2004)

    BTW, there are quite a few very old Nobel Prize winners alive out there. They'll all pass the "fame test", so this may be a good mine for 2005 and on. regards, Hein
