Happy New Year

As an update to my last post in 2006, here are my picks for death pool 2007.

My choices reflect consideration for either terminal disease, advanced age, and/or risky lifestyle choices.

Without further ado, here they are.

1. Fidel Castro
2. Betty Ford
3. Pete Doherty
4. Lindsay Lohan
5. Mary Traverse
6. Jack Kevorkian
7. John Forsythe
8. Roger Ebert
9. Farrah Fawcett
10. Ariel Sharon
11. Joe Eszterhas
12. Brooke Astor
13. Geraldine Ferraro

Happy new year!

Are you just hoping on the Lindsay Lohan front?

Gee I thought the critics has murdered Joe Eszterhas after that stripper movie, whatcha call it? Anyway good call on Pete Doherty, that guy has had more snow than Denver! You missed one tho...Jason Newstead! This time Lukas promised the stack of Marshalls won't miss......

Happy New Year from the east coast!
We got it first!

EditThis - Word. While I'm certainly not a fan, my selection of Lindsay is based strictly on what I consider to be a toxic downward spiral.

Eddie - Ha! I kinda think Jason faked that injury and won't be back. Thanks for visiting!

some of these choices I should Google - is Geraldine Ferraro ill? I'd think Nicole Richie might not be a bad choice either . . .

Roger Ebert might be my oddest celeb sighting ever - a small cafe in Edinburgh Scotland - I'm sure he was there for the film part of the Edinburgh Festival . . .

Diane - Unfortunately, Geraldine has multiple myeloma.

And that's a GREAT celebrity sighting story!

Great choices LA.

Castro may have died months ago but we'll never know.

Many couples who've been together for 50+ years go fast after their spouse dies so Betty Ford may be a reliable choice.

Mary Traverse? don't know who that is

John Forsythe the actor from Dynasty?

What about Kitty Carlisle?

Sadly, this may also be the year for Mr Mohommed Ali.

Ffleur - Mary Traverse is from the 60s singing group, Peter, Paul, and Mary. She has leukemia.

Yes, John Forsythe from Dynasty (and Charlie's Angels).

I replaced Kitty Carlisle with Brooke Astor this year.
