    Should we survive the Mayan Apocalypse tomorrow, there will be those who fail to survive 2013. And that's how we play the game. Pick 10 celebrities from any venue who you believe will be ex-people by December 31 2013. Your picks must be alive as of your submission and deader than that plate of fried chicken you had for Sunday dinner last week by New Year's Eve of 2013.

    Entries must be submitted NO LATER THAN TUESDAY JANUARY 1 2013 12:00 NOON EASTERN TIME.

    Most of my 2012 picks are still hanging on, so I will include some of them, but change things up. If any of my included 2012 picks die before 2013, I reserve the right to replace them for my 2013 picks.

    Billy Graham
    Fidel Castro
    Nelson Mandela
    John Paul Stevens
    Michael Philip "Mick" Jagger
    George H. W. Bush
    Elizabeth Alexandra Mary (Queen Elizabeth II)
    Hugo Chavez
    Marcelo Ebrard
    Bashar al-Assad

    Straight deaths, unless you have an app that will calculate each age.

    And again, I'm offering a piece of the world famous Fiestaware China which is locally made. So, factory outlet availability makes it practical to offer the prize.

    Since few people live to 100, the simplest method of age scoring would be to subtract the age at death from 100. No app, but it would be relatively easy to set up as an Xcel spreadsheet. Doing it that way nearly eliminates the possibility of ties. Of course, picking just one young Hollywood or R&R train wreck would probably guarantee a win.
