Recommended Posts

Thank you to whoever wrote the biography paragraph for my unique pick Baroness Falkender! Very humorous.  The last line made me giggle! :P

That means that I am going to have to resort to bombarding the Guardian obits twitter feed with covers of her books. I might add in Julian May and David Fisher just to make a point about anti SF snobbery.

 

Hold off the assault on the Guardian, Wilhelm got a Mail AP obit.

Thanks, I try.


Greg Louganis still has the funniest DDP bio though.

New York Times as well but I won't mention it cuz it'll make me look passive aggressive.

That isn’t a QO though. Otherwise, Cynthia Heimel would’ve been a hit for TJS...

Already annoyed that Vanessa LaFaye keeps my B-team from having the full 20/20.

LaFaye will still be a QO if she has a final book to be published, surely? Best check Publishers' Weekly.

Interesting you used a BBC regional obit for Edwards @Spade_Cooley, I'm assuming that was a placeholder til the real one came along.

It was. I just knew that he'd get one within hours, The Guardian has come through with a proper obit now.

Congrats to Sir Creep for picking the diplomat Ivan Ivanov, who was the USSR's ambassador to Afghanistan for two months. He died July 11th, 1948.

Did he perhaps mean another Ivan Ivanov?

Sir Creep should know better than to pick already dead people for his team. Two people on two different teams from the same person. Next  thing that happens is that Richard Haag is said to have died last year...

Not to re-mention I’m pretty sure two of Gris Gris entries are already dead, I said this when I turned in the list.  Can’t confirm so I left em on but said they’re probably dead (105-year old rugby player, 1-legged Drummer).  Sounding like I had 15 actual names lol.

The fact that every single broadsheet had a Philip Kerr bio ready to drop within 24 hours and nobody picked him on the DDP makes me believe that no current obituary writers for the UK national press play the DDP.

It's Good Friday, so like a good Catholic boy I'm eating a lot of squid and done you a DDP update.

Maybe take Bill Lucas and Carmel McSharry off the List of the Lost?

Please add David Ogden Stiers to List of the Missed. He was on a MASH theme team in 2015.
