Mary Tyler Moore, Jeff Goldblum, and John Hurt have already said goodbye! Who else looks old?

Dick Van Dyke is still alive, so surely this must be his last year. Both George and BrahBrah Bush? Harrison Ford? And where's Gene Hackman? Queen Elizabeth II????? :'( :'(

A rolling stone is going to die this year. It's hard to predict any of them ever dying, considering they're more controlled substance than human now, but I think one will kick the bucket.

Yeah, a popular activity! Looks like Kirk Douglas tops this 50-celebrity list:
http://deathlist.net/
1. Kirk Douglas
22. Betty White
24. Queen Elizabeth II
28. George Bush Senior
48. Mary Tyler Moore ☠✔

I'm surprised that Dick Van Dyke wasn't in their top 50. I guess they didn't think of symmetry ;)

Another thought from that Google search: maybe we could each pick our 10 favorites and whoever gets the most correct by the end of the year wins... something ... another gift card? An all expenses paid trip to Burkina Faso? Glitter mail? ;D

Queen Elizabeth II Death Watch Update:
"Queen Elizabeth Rushed To Hospital For Royal Blood Transfusion"
[Onion News in Brief]
http://www...pital-royal-blood-transf-55500
"LONDON—Saying that Her Highness was now in stable condition, Buckingham Palace representatives announced Thursday that Queen Elizabeth II had been rushed to the hospital early this morning to receive an emergency transfusion of royal blood. “It was a dire situation—there was very little royal blood on hand owing to the relatively small number of donations made by the noble-born,” said Private Secretary to the Sovereign Sir Christopher Geidt, adding that Prince William ultimately donated the blood of royal descent that saved the queen’s life. “Unfortunately, Prince Harry was not a match for Her Majesty, and Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton was of no use, being of common parentage.” Geidt went on to say that in the event Queen Elizabeth required another transfusion, three-year-old Prince George would remain readily available to donate as much as was needed."

The Onion may have quietly informed my suspicions that rich people really may get blood transfusions from the young ;)

Yesterday Joseph Nicolosi, who played a prominent role in promoting reparative therapy, passed away unexpectedly from complications from the flu. Although Spiritual Friendship exists in large part to provide an alternative to Dr. Nicolosi’s approach, we join in praying for the repose of his soul and for those who were close to him, that they may find consolation in this difficult time.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.

Charlie Manson

The Onion did a couple of stories for him :D

"Frustrated Jesus Christ Forced To Find 22nd Vessel For Reincarnation After Death Of Charles Manson"
[Onion News in Brief]
http://www...ind-22nd-vessel-for-1820615588
"THE HEAVENS—Returning home to the heavenly realm once again in a foul mood, Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, reportedly expressed frustration Monday with being forced to find a 22nd vessel for reincarnation after the death of Charles Manson. “Well, that was just a total waste of my time,” said Christ, referring to the 83 years spent on Earth as the cult leader and convicted murderer who he had intended on using to bring about Judgment Day after already experiencing a series of failed second comings that included Benito Mussolini, Vlad the Impaler, and Reverend Cotton Mather. “I had really high hopes for finally doing the end-of-days thing with this one, and instead I get locked up for almost half a century. Maybe I was trying a little too hard with all the Helter Skelter apocalyptic race war shit. I’m definitely going to have to be a little pickier next time. I was supposed to bring about the end of the world like, 800 years ago, and now this is just getting really embarrassing.” At press time, Christ was reportedly not taking any chances by making sure he was born directly into a rich political family."
