Today in news Amy Winehouse dies. In related news the sun rose today. I'm not sure which news is more predictable or more entertaining.

@holymythos: Yeah. Can't say I didn't see that one coming.

They tried to make me go to rehab but I said no, no, no
Yes I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know know
I ain't got the time
And if my daddy thinks I'm fine
You tried to make me go to rehab but I won't go, go, go

Oooooh the irony.

I'm seriously gonna win this year's deathpool. Betty ford and amy winehouse were my #1 & #2 picks, for 10 & 9 points respectively.

@kamikazeken: Who's #3 and #4, oh great Nostradamus?

the death pool I participate in has 10 entries per year, your #1 choice is worth 10 points, #2 worth 9, and so on down to #10 worth 1 point.

I called this one 4 weeks ago on the site where we have the death pool, when I quoted the article about her concert debacle in serbia where she was late, forgot lyrics, vanished from stage, and canceled the rest of her European tour.

other names on my list this cycle include
Hugo Chavez
Jimmy Carter
Dick Cheney
Betty White
Kim il Jung
Nancy Reagan
Andy Rooney
Dick Clark

it's all in the name of good healthy fun (dark humor).
Maybe a d.w! deathpool is in order?
basic rules are that the person can not already be gravely ill, and must be a celebrity or public figure of some sort, no "regular joe's" allowed.
