Destroyers of Democracy (redux)

Unfortunately, no one on my 2018 list seems to have died. This list is nearly identical to last year's, except that I have removed two corrupt cabinet officials who have left in disgrace (Scott Pruitt and Ryan Zinke) and replaced them with two despicable right-wing pundits: Limbaugh and Coulter. (I would have chosen Hannity, but I felt the list needed more women. Diversity is a good thing, don'cha know.)

Donald Trump
Mike Pence
Mitch McConnell
Paul Ryan
Orrin Hatch
Steve Bannon
Roy Moore
Rush Limbaugh
Charles Koch
David Koch
Rupert Murdoch
Robert Mercer
David Deniston Smith

Alternates:
Ann Coulter
Tom Cotton
Betsy DeVos

Mercer is the money behind Trump, and Smith is the Chairman of Sinclair Broadcasting, an ultra-right wing media empire.

Lester Holt
Lester Greene

Lester Hayes

Lester Speight actor: Terry Tate office linebacker
I think the others are well enough known.

BTW: I am working on the ScoreKeeper (an Excel file that lets you input year of death and track the scores). For those with access, it is in a new "2019" folder in the Shared DropBox folder.

For anyone interested, PM me your email address, so I can share the DropBox folder (or e-mail the file, but I post updated versions on DropBox as necessary).

I'm here in between hospital visits.

Really, I expect to get at least one this year, even though she won't give me points, just a unique pick. Roberta McCain is approaching her 107th birthday.

Score for Happy!

Lenny Green, a former outfielder and member of the 1968 Detroit Tigers, died yesterday on his 86th birthday, robbing me of a point.

I think you've entered the wrong name for the 14 pointer. Should be me ('68 Tigers), not Loach.

Bob Gibson has pancreatic cancer. If he shuffles off to that ol' Hall of Fame in the Sky before November, the '68 Cards will pull ahead of the '68 Tigers by 2.

Carmine Caridi passed away back on May 28th. I just caught it by giving my listees a mid-year checkup.

Fifteen points! And, dare I say it, first place? (yeah for now)
