Tread, Nancy Reagan died in 2016. And Olivia de Havilland, Kirk Douglas, and William Coors are all over a hundred so they won't score you any points.

Same as last year, minus those who carked it this year when I finally got points on the board. I don't think many need clarification. June Whitfield is a British comedy actress, most famously from Terry and June and Absolutely Fabulous. Gary Glitter was briefly a pop star who got into some naughty trouble later in life. The rest are comfortably household names.

David Attenborough
Candice Bergen
Mel Brooks
George H W Bush
Tim Conway
Gary Glitter
Bob Newhart
Pele
William Shatner
Betty White
June Whitfield
John Williams
Joanne Woodward

BACKUPS
Sean Connery
Donald Trump
Macaulay Culkin

3. Mohammad Yaqoob (1990), Taliban deputy
I decided to Google this guy. Cracked up when the fifth entry down was:
Quote:
View the profiles of professionals named Mohammad Yaqoob on LinkedIn. There are 100+ professionals named Mohammad Yaqoob, who use LinkedIn to exchange information, ideas, and opportunities.
I had this vision of more than a hundred terrorists named Mohammad Yaqoob, exchanging "information, ideas, and opportunities" via LinkedIn relating to their field. "I, Mohammad Yaqoob, am a middle-level operative with ISIS. Recent problems in the organization have me seeking new opportunities."

Dang. This was going to be my theme list idea. Now I have to scramble with Plan B.

BTW, the story of Bette Cooper is fascinating. I had never heard about the disappearing MA before.

Oops. In that case, let's put Cheney on Alternate. I figure he's got that mechanical heart and bathes in the bloods of virgins, so he's probably got a few more years in him.

And there is the question of whether a wooden stake or a silver bolt should be driven through a mechanical heart, further complicating matters.

I think Andrew Rodman died, unless there are two of them with cancer. Can you dig up a date of birth?

55. I believe you are correct. The poet they are collecting funds for is the dead ringer for the dead poet. I will replace him with Holly Rowe.

Shit. Hadn't known he was in poor health.

Also probably missed my last chance to see him in concert, when he was at the Warner in DC two months ago.
