  1. It has to be remembered that points are awarded for the number of years the croaker was under 80. Crocks over 80 earn negative points. That's why Harvey's score on Michael Jackson was an impressive 30 points. Also I think Mickey Rooney is already dead which greatly reduces the likelihood of him dying any time soon or ever.

    Wait a second, schmendrick...First of all, Mickey Rooney is 88 yrs. old and still kicking or at least, minimally wiggling his toes...

    However, you may want to reconsider that Burton J. actually contributed to this dead pool since he died, July 5, 2007.

  3. I just copy what people send me....

    Don't be silly, Ted Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor and Nancy Reagan will outlive us all.

    Mickey Rooney is alive -- He just doesn't look it.

  5. Actually, you subtract the age from 100. That was why I lost 2 points when George Burns died. Karl Malden would have only fetched 8 points, hardly worth it.

  6. So Darling Michael was worth 50, count 'em 50, points. A handsome haul for the Gaon of Chico.

    Walter Cronkite dead dead dead at 92
    today, July 17, am I minus 8 points
    already? Hey baby, I'm just getting started!

    Sadly, Martha's Vineyard will never be the same.
