Former Dutch Pm Piet de Jong
An elder statesman, the oldest prime minister alive. But what's up with him? No mention of a health crisis or death on any major English-language website, en-Wikipedia or De Telegraaf.

Well yes. At 99 he's the second oldest living state leader. There's a reason why I picked him for my theme team.

Here's a picture of him, taken 15 may 2014:

Yesterday I paid a visit to the Poetry International Festival, to listen to Jules Deelder. Deelder appeared to be in fine shape at 69, even after a life full of booze and dope.

Interesting (for deadpooling purposes) was a video message from Dutch poet Remco Campert. At 84, Campert apparently was too frail to attend in person, and the video showed an old man, speaking in that soft, breathless manner so typical for the elderly. I'm afraid he doesn't have many years left in him, even though he still regularly writes for newspaper Review the complete topic (launches new window)
