Only two more chances to score and move up the leaderboard.  Better make the lists good.  For Nov:

Leah Bracknell

Tim Conway

Jean Louis Trintignant

Loretta Lynn

Katie Hnida

As I see the scoreboard updated, what's ND Tiwari's QO?

I was assuming the popularity of this name meant he was a shoe in for an obit.  Maybe a household name in New Delhi??  Have I jumped the gun here?  I tend to be lax on QO's, but if there is nothing remotely close then I will have to amend the leaderboard when I post the NOV teams, which I plan on doing soon.  Anyone?  Bueller?

He was a pretty high ranking official, I'm not certain but I think 3rd highest in country (similar to our Secretary of State here in the States), coupled with the tabloid discovery and admission of having an out of wedlock son 30 years earlier now that he was 84, and then marries the mother at 85 or so.  Caught on tape in sex scandals as well.  Amazing lack on interest in the international community.

Reverend Robert Graetz --- ok I have all the respect in the world for Roey, who says he had his name now for the second time, in his two top spots.  I ran that name and I find nothing.  Maybe he's related to Joey Russ or summat....inside information.  I would have stolen the name if I could have found so much as a cough and common cold in the man.
So....cough up the info, Joey.  What's wrong with this Reverend and why is he so close to death?

This article talks about him being in hospice. Admittedly it could be a similar situation as Bishop Quinn, but he’s a fascinating enough name that I picked him twice.

Oh can we count the times, including this month almost, I've been sucked into the Quinn Vortex of Disbelief.

Tiwari looks to be another "mentioned fairly regularly in the UK press" name which got no mentions at all when they died this year. But don't worry, some mum somewhere will get cancer and a full article obit...

Maybe if Tiwari would have shagged Laura Harris or Sara Meddings his odds to obit would have increased.

theoldlady and sirC have until the end of the year to produce the QO for ND Tiwari.  And Cap'n Cho misses Ted Mack for 2 pts by a few days.  I am almost falling asleep at my computer, so check your teams for accuracy (other than the random keystroke error).  Good luck to all in round 11.  Remember the last week of Dec is double points week!

It's only local BBC, so doesn't count here. But I actually expect something more tomorrow. And "interesting" that the BBC copy/pastes gofundme messages and comments.
