KKK Grand Wizard Frank Ancona was found dead at 51. Gunshot.

Best decision he ever made.

It's also from 12 February 2017. It was updated on 5 February because his widow now says she killed him.

This happened 2 years ago.

Of note, the Honda store that had the same name as this guy has since changed its name to 'Honda of Olathe'.

Edit: Ninja'd! Leaving it for the additional factoid, though.

You know, after pointing out that Morgyn botched Ernie Bsnks' death, I suppose it's karma for me to do the same thing.

Offshoot of Gaudere's Law, I suppose.

Death pool list idea for next year: celebs who've been demoted to alternate status after several years on someone's list.[/QUOTE]


That could be an entry in the Themed Death Pool

My theme for this year's entry was people I had picked to die on my 1999 to 2003 lists.

Fifteen years later and there were still enough of them alive to fill a new list. Plus alternates. Even after crossing off the ones who are now over a hundred.

Farewell to Freedom Fries Jones. I'm glad I got the opportunity to vote against you several times when I lived in ENC.

Unlike most of the rest of the GOP, he realized fairly early in our Iraq misadventure that he'd gotten it wrong. Wrote thousands of letters of condolence to the families of our fallen soldiers. I'm sure I disagreed with him on a great deal, but he's one of the last Republicans I actually had a measure of respect for.

Will Governor Whitmer declare that the day of his funeral be known as "Dingell Bury Day"?

The road connecting the two terminals at Metro Airport is John Dingell Drive. When they retired the Berry Terminal, I always thought it would've been nice for the Berry family if airport administration added the Berry name to the road's name. A nice hyphenated tribute to the two men.

Not really a celebrity, but an interesting guy anyway, Ron Hutchinson, founder of the Vitaphone Project to preserve the soundtracks of the original "talkies".

The link does not make mention of his demise, nor does there seem to be anything in a search perhaps since it is a wiki page, it was vandalized and restored?

Looks like it's being talked about on Twitter, but I can't find anything on my usual news sources.

Of course, Lyndon LaRouche would say reports of his death are just another plot by Queen Elizabeth, the Jews, Greenpeace, and Satanists.

Between mentions of it on Twitter, and Wikipedia (temporarily) listing yesterday as his date of death, I was fooled, it looks like. Such is life.

They're about the same age, too: LaRouche is 96, and Kissinger turns 96 in May.

Lyndon LaRouche's death is now being noted by a reputable source.

Or maybe that's what they WANT us to believe.

But, after all that fuss, a pointless exit.
