    Martin Gardner

    Someone I can't find previously mentioned on the DL is the 93-year-old 'godfather of recreational mathematics' (i.e. he likes puzzles), Martin Gardner. I'd never heard of him till reading this article, and his wiki page suggests he's eminent enough for a suitable obituary - check the Escher and Tetris references. The article says he's too frail to attend the G4G conferences held in his name these days (though it also says he's still 'mentally and physically fit'), so he's a possible deadpool pick for someone willing to take a gamble.

    Harvey Korman

    Harvey Korman looks like he will not be in the saddle any more. Maybe not famous enough, however it was one of my favourite films.
  3. Senator Edward Kennedy has been hospitalised after suffering stroke-like symptoms.

    Morgan Tsvangirai

    A marked man, according to the link. And planning to return to Zimbabwe. In need of his own thread I reckon, if only so's we get familiar with the right spelling of his name.

    James Garner

    James Garner, a veteran actor, has been hospitalized after what is described to be a 'minor' stroke. Didn't Aaron Spelling also have a minor stroke? This post kicks off the very home of all further hospitalizations to be reported on www.deathlist.net.

    Fawza Falih

    What are your thoughts on Fawza Falih? Is it really possible that this is going to happen? I work in Salem, Massachusetts but they stopped this a little over 300 years ago.

    Hugh Hefner

    Hey, wondered if you had considered Hugh Hefner for next years list. He is already 82 and I mean, how much longer can he go with 3 demanding girlfriends???

    Jeff Conaway

    The ever-tasteful VH1 is airing a show called Celebrity Rehab. One of the 'contestants' is washed-up actor Jeff Conaway (Grease, Taxi), who has apparently attempted suicide 21 times (eight paragraphs into the article). While his cork-popping abilities are clearly on a par with his acting skills, he seems like a right drug monkey and could be a possible candidate for an earlyish demise.
  14. Will be turning 62 this year. That's not old by DeathList standards, but she's been suffering from diabetes for many years and is registered blind. Might be worth considering as a possibility at some stage, especially if there's news of further health problems. Would doubtless get a UK obituary.

    Liz Dawn

    Vera Duckworth (AKA emphysema-suffering actress Liz Dawn) meets her maker on t'Street tonight, eyes pecked out of her rotting skull by Jack's pigeons after electrocuting herself in a massage chair. Flamin' nora.

    Bobby Fischer

    Chess legend Bobby Fischer has died. I was still waiting for the return match. At 64 you would of thought he still had few moves up his sleeve.

    José Alencar

    Jose Alencar, the Vice President of Brazil, is suffering from abdominal cancer.
  18. Alright, it has been a few years since his telly appearances but quietly after a long illness must have been worthy of inclusion. Probably helping St Pete improve his productivity by now

    Ronald Coase For 2008?

    Ronald Coase who won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1991, will turn 97 in a few days. I've recognized that Deathlist is out of Economists and if Coase makes the 2008 list - for some reason I think we will be in the same situation again soon.

    Jack Ramsay

    He ranks second on the all - time NBA wins list and is one of the most respected coaches in the game. He has had cancer for some time and it has spread throughout his body. I think he qualifies for a prime candidate.

    Willem Kolff For 2008?

    The so called 'Father of Artificial Organs' Willem Kolff will turn 97 next year and his genius has saved millions of lives and is considered one of the most important physicians of the 20th century.
