Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

As Quim says above, her mental health issues have been well publicised in the past, so that's obviously the most likely scenario. But who knows, worth keeping an eye on in case it turns out to be something more sinister. Hope she gets the help she needs, though, don't fancy another Caroline Flack scenario.

 

 

Mondale is obviously a contender given his age but he's still in pretty good health for someone in their early nineties. I'd be looking at him for 2022 to step into his President's shoes when Carter's gone. A heartbeat away from the Deathlist you might say.

I used to see Mondale quite frequently as I'd often drive past the grocery store that he frequents on my way from work. However in the past couple of years he hasn't been out and about quite as often.

De Klerk is definitely in my "I thought he'd died several years ago" list

Bob Dole is still a better bet in the battle of the 1976 Vice Presidential candidates

I don't live anywhere near Dole, so was purely making a comment regarding Mondale

I'm sure he'll have been mentioned before but Francis Ford Coppola (1939) looks a lot thinner here than he was only a few years ago.

Fair observation, although I'd say that's fairly understandable, I doubt there are many 90-odd year olds who do all their own shopping, whether because they've got people happy to help them or because of ill health (which isn't always clear). It is, of course, perfectly feasible that he dies next year, but I don't know if the Committee would add him to a list that already includes Carter, Dole and Kissinger (all of whom I assume are certs to reappear). Next year, I'd guess we'd lose Carter and (surely?) Dole, in which case I think there'd be a spot available for Mondale in 2022. If Carter dies before year's end, I think Mondale would be a nice, and clever, replacement.

He'd be with a nurse / home help and he'd be in a wheelchair. His daughter used to help him before she fell ill due to cancer.

Why is everyone suddenly obsessed with this Rosemary Harris? Genuinely had never heard of her before about a week ago (although it turns out I do know her work in the Spiderman films) but now she's been mentioned three times in this thread and has her own thread started a few days ago...despite there being absolutely nothing wrong with her as far as we know (I get it, she's 93). Am I missing something? :huh:

 

I'd be tempted to suggest many of the mentions come from recent forum joiners, but I choose not to become part of the tinfoil hat brigade and take people on face value.

Rosemary Harris succeed Diana Rigg as Mrs Higgins in My Fair Lady on Broadway a couple of years back, Wouldn’t have found that many people expecting her to outline Diana despite Diana having known health issues,

How about Canadian singer Raymond Lévesque for the 2021 DL?

 

He’s turning 93 next year and he sang one of my favourite songs “Quand Les Hommes Vivront d’amour”.

One I would really love to see on the list is Iris Apfel, turning 100 next year, still active, fashion icon and surely obitable. Maybe a great name to replace the four centenarians we lost this year

I don’t think Keith Richards is going off on his way any time soon. He seems to be in decent shape, got at least five years ahead I’d say.

Not sure about moving Cheney.Normally I would say yes but with Covid ravaging the US he is in danger due to his heart transplant.

There are many possible additions to next year DL and I'm sure many interesting names will pop up.

 

I'd like to recommend former Chinese president Jiang Zemin, also known as the Toad. He will turn 95 and is really overdue. Plenty of serious health issues, rumours floating around continuosly and the evident failure to appear at the last plenum may suggest it is his time. No one would be surprised at all, it's something which has been expected in his country for a long time. That's why I strongly suggest him.

Beverly Cleary gets recommended each year and never gets put on. The year they finally do she’ll go.

 If there is any NYC mayor dying anytime soon it’s definitely David Dinkins.

Some names I'd like to see on the list for 2021:

 

Burt Bacharach 

Bernard Cribbens 

Gina Lollobrigida 

Mohammed Al Fayed 

Dame Joan Plowright 

 

All of them over 90, so could go any time, and all of them would be big misses if they went without inclusion (ok, maybe not Cribbens).

I think we should consider Robert Redford for a wild card. The legend will be 85 next year and recently heartbroken by the death of his son.
