Is this an acceptable obituary for Lars Larsen?  You didn't explicitly mention MSN but it is included in Windy City.  The fact that Univision is also included seems to imply that foreign-language sources are acceptable.

Well all good things have to come to an end, and after 15 days without a hit, our Admin had to actually DO something.
And do he has.  Updated for Kathleen Blanco - a plethora of hits - and a FINE solo hit for Lars Larsen for JiroemonKimura!

And with that solo hit, we have a new leader.  Scores are on page (1), and I'm not posting all at this point, but here is your condensed scoreboard:
JiroemonKimura - 12

msc - 9

some folks - 4

some other folks - 3

some cuntos - 0

Well -- we await a proper Romero obit.  Ugh... seriously, NYTimes, letting SirC down.  Well I'll give it through Sunday and make adjustments if necess.

In the meantime, a REAL celebrity has produced a number of hits.  1939 (i.e. under 80 yrd old) bonus kicks in (2 pts):
Harper, Valerie (4 points) - theoldlady, DI, RadGuy, Book, Clorox Bleachman, CaptChorizo, and Toast all with hits.
Valerie Harper (3 points) - msc, Sean, Joey Russ, Banana, Etushispushingupdasies, and Torva Messor with hits as well.

OK - a tripartite update

1) Sorry but -5 (for now) for all who had Randy Romero -- no obit means no points. 
2) Roger Etchegaray points added (Sir Creep and Toast with hits + Duo bonus).  Our first vowel surname hit!
3) Robert Mugabe points added (Captain Chorizo and Etushispushingupdasies with hits + Duo bonus)

 

Official scoreboard as of Sept 6:

JiroemonKimura - 12

Oh... I was just catching up, busy at work.  How can that be possible?  Oh well.... Maybe I'm compiling a personal list of non-obitable people on my team lol.
SC

Edit: Even the Detroit Catholic paper has it lol.

Edit2: Etchegaray points deleted for now.

Qualifying names will be those getting an obit by sources used by the Windy City Deadpool, also found on its own thread at this site.  That pool, in turn, uses the obit sources of the Derby Dead Pool, but adds US sources ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox networks.  Also acceptable are CNN, The New York Times, the LA Times and the Associated Press as legit obit sources. 

This is the QO list @Yvonne

It’s part of the Derby Dead Pool QO list, which the BBC is a part of. So it’s acceptable

He’s from New Zealand. New Zealanders typically don’t get a QO. Just ask Cocksy

Based on the Lars Larsen precedent of allowing MSN, both Etchegaray and Ellis have QO's.

It’s not a precedent there are a list of QOs.  I’m happy to extract points lol.  Etchegaray has no points.

I believe he's saying as precedence for Lars Larsen, those two should be allowed. However, I agree with you, those aren't good enough QOs so Lars Larsen's points should also be deducted.
