You had better not be very good at this. If those last 3 go, a lot of people will want to hunt you down and hurt you badly.
I betting on a terrorist attack at the San Diego Comic Con.
I mean Paul Harvey Aurandt, the radio guy. Sorry for the confusion.
Thank you for all your hard work on this project each year.

You need 3 more, Gonzo.
Except for the conch (to steal from another game) - Patrick Swayze- and the perrennial Jacko pick, I’m going to go with my tried and true, shares the same birthday as me method – which I’ve just realized takes one out of the running becuase he’s already dead (Jerry Falwell) … but I digress.

Micheal J. Fox - How do you trace a scatter plot…
Mr. Miyagi- I only refer him to that because that’s what he’s better known as
Michael Savage- We can all wish
Richard Adams- 2nd author, but he’s getting on in years.
Nancy Reagan- no explination needed.
Stan Lee- That’s gonna suck
Bob Dole - and ending on 2 politicians
Ted Stevens - Death is a series of tube
Just to get things on the up and up – a re-listing of my picks to get Hulk Hogan in there instead of his given name:
Claus von Bulow
Lex Luger aka Lawrence Wendell Pfohl
Forrest J Ackerman
Zsa Zsa Gabor
Pat Morita who played Miyagi died like 3 years ago.
Please forgive me. I seem to have listed Paul Harvey twice. Further, I did not pick up on it even when someone tried to give me a clue. Please add ex-FLOTUS Nancy Reagan in for the second Paul H. Again, I appreciate all your work on this and am sorry to have caused you the trouble.
Alternate 1: Eli Wallach
Alternate 2: Courtney Love
Thanks for doing this, amarone.
Dear God, *Frank Cady *is still alive! (He’s 93!)
ETA: and his wife died less than four months ago after 58 years of marriage!
I am going with a lot of long shot druggies with a few old people/cancer patients thrown in for luck.
Here is my list:
Queen Elisabeth II
While never admitting that this is one of the prmary reasons I joined the Straight Dope (because how weird is that?), I submit the following list.
Can you modify your list until dec 31 or are you stuck with it.
Did you really need to quote the entire OP to ask that question?
Ah, I’m just cranky because not a single person on my '08 list had the decency to die. The good news is that I have a perfectly good list, which I herewith replay:
Jaye P. Morgan
Alternate: Joyce Brothers
You can change at will up to 13:59:59 CST on 31 December.
Make that 23:59:59 CST. :smack:
