    With December looming on the horizon, I figured now is as good a time as any to introduce the 2012 Dead Pool. Here's how it works: Pick 10 (ten) celebrities from any venue (politics, sports, business, media, entertainment or whatever Paris Hilton does) who you believe will not be around to see the ball drop in Times Square ushering in 2013. They must be alive as of January 1, 2012, but enriching the soil someplace as of midnight Eastern December 31, 2012.

    Ten dead people. That's all we need to win. When you think of it in those terms, it's cheaper than war.

    The winning entry must be submitted no later than December 30, 2011 at midnight Eastern time. Post as many times as you like, but CLEARLY MARK the entry you want taken seriously. One and only one serious entry will be accepted, but I know how much you folks love to speculate. Just look at last year's entries!

    So, put on the cloak, pick up the scythe and figure out who will be breathing as of New Year's Eve 2012-2013 and who's gonna be room temperature.

    In a later post, I'll lay out the rules clearly and reveal what next year's prize will be!

    Have fun!

    Who's Alive and Who's Dead

    A good reference site to determine, well, who's dead and who's still alive. It even shows how old someone is so your choices might make a little more sense. But, then again, choosing a dark horse is always interesting. Amy Winehouse surprised no one, but only one person had her last year.

    That's okay, but I don't believe anyone is psychic! Psychotic, that's another story.

    Thanks, strollingbones, but to tell you the truth, being as I am so unpsychic, I did look up Hollywood people in the Hospital.

    The only one I found was Reese Witherspoon who was injured while out jogging in September, but she was promptly released after examination.

    It turns out the 84-year-old woman driving the car that hit her apologized.

    Well, that's show biz and suspiciously, whatever the writer writes about the talented famous people on the silver screen, you just accept.

    I mean, what other choice is there, really?

    Hmm. Remember Karen Carpenter who died of anorexia a ton of years ago?

    It appears the 5'8" Angelina Jolie is down to 97 pounds and is forgetting to eat on a regular basis "due to her stressful lifestyle."

    Unless she pulls herself together, she could be next. I hope she gets help.
