Is there any evidence that Kilmer is ill again?

No, but his voice has become so unintelligible in recent years, and that combined with his previous cancer battle, and ongoing eating issues (needing feeding tube to eat) made me decide he had to debut in 2024. Of course, he is probably one of the healthier picks on my list.

What do you guys think about my drops? I'm still uncertain about a few of them:

Andy Taylor:  His radiation Therapy seems to give him a little bit more time than initially expected, is no longer in palliative care and is currently asymptomatic, his prostate cancer has only spread to his bones yet

Josip Manolic: Had this guy on my list for years now and he just doesn't die so I decided to drop him like I did with David Musuguri last year whose also still alive, he's probably one of the healthier centenarians, still walks unaided, survived Covid without getting hospitalized and isn't an A-Lister like Dick van Dyke, who would be to big to be missed

Zhang Lixiong: Very frail and will probably die next year but I found him a boring name, he's a General and one of the last founding members of the PLA but basically just famous for his age in the west

June Lockhart: Just old but still active as an actress at 98 now

Roger Corman: Another generic old guy without public health issues who seemingly stopped aging 20 years ago by his appearance, these kind of names haven't brought me a lot of hits in my previous Shadowlists

David Attenborough: Definitely one of the hardest drops, as I love his documentaries and wouldn't want to miss him but objectively there are better candidates, I always keep the 25 remainer limit so I had to drop either him of Dick van Dyke and I kept Dick van Dyke because of his dramatic weight loss in the last few years and his recent appearances in a wheelchair

Mel Brooks: Same reason as Corman and Lockhart but I strangely have a feeling that he might join his friends Norman Lear and Carl Reiner next year, even though he's in perfect health but it's basically a gamble at this age
