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.
