Points for me!

David Koch has died.

Although I had mixed feelings about earning points in the Celebrity Death Pool thread with the deaths of Carol Channing and Doris Day, but I will not shed the tiniest tear over this guy or any of the other destroyers of democracy on my list. May they all join Koch burning in hell as soon as possible.

I just read the Ruth Bader Ginsberg was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

I don't want anyone to die like that, and especially not a Supreme Court Justice. It will give the Pumpkin in Chief a nother spot to fill.

She's telling the truth; I had to remind her. And I will ignore that I already had her (I believe) on and off for a few years as an alternate over on my normal list.

Well --------- as normal as anything is around the Dope.

Posted in the main Death Pool thread was this notice that porn star Jessica Jaymes has died:

Alas, she was not on my porn star-themed list.

I just did a health check and

Jeremy Kemp is dead (July 19 2019) ---- age 84. And points for me.

FINALLY! At their ages all the people in that movie should be dropping like flies!

kopek, the thing is, when folks get old they've got very, very good at living, and they want to stay that way. One year I did an entire list of folks at least ninety-five, and only two obliged me, for a total of three points. Of course a third died Jan. 4 of the next year.

Heck, this year one of my picks in the list here is 107 years old, and she just keeps going and going.

Jeremy Kemp is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! E's pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN ACTOR!!"

Whew ------ I feel much better now. Thank You!


I still need to catch the old lady though.
