** Celebrity Passages 2011 **
 
Last year we kept a tally of famed individuals that had passed on through the year, even going so far as to keep a list of predictions. For some, this is a morbid exercise that pokes fun of the dead and makes light of tough situations. We contend it is not, but nearly another way we mark time and "remember when" as each holiday season passes by.

I'm very late in getting a thread together this year. And today -- as we mark the passage of a truly great Hollywood legend, Elizabeth Taylor -- I thought it best to finally, um, resurrect this thread and post my official picks for this year as I originally posted them on my personal blog in January (note that Liz didn't make the list this year):

1. Kim Jung Il (he may already be dead for all we know)
2. Bob Dole (Sorry Bob, all your recent hospital visits have me worried)
3. Dick Cheney
4. Betty Ford
5. Zsa Zsa Gabor
6. Harry Morgan
7. Olivia De Havilland
8. Jerry Lewis
9. Fidel Castro
10. Lindsay Lohan

Feel free to post your own predictions and I promise no one will make fun of you for being weird.

This isn't an exercise in the morose. In fact, it is a grand Internet tradition.

Here's a list of folks we've already lost in 2011:

1. Elizabeth Taylor
2. Jack LaLanne
3. Gerry Rafferty
4. Jane Russell
5. Nate Dogg
6. Len Lesser
7. Betty Garrett
8. John Barry
9. Charlie Callas
10. David Nelson
11. Michael Gough

If you know of any others, please post them in tribute (or infamy, depending on who it is...)

I'll put Charlie Sheen out there though I think he'll live just long enough to make me wrong.

Yeah, I had him on my list last year (before his madness peaked, it turned out) and put Lindsay Lohan in his place. Sad to have to say.

Around the middle of March. Multiple strokes, evidently. Sad.
