The former Prime Minister of Australia turns 90 this year, and reported to be in declining health. Good pick for '07?

Hans Dietrick Genscher, born 1927
Robert Rauschenberg 1925
Joseph Juran, now over 100 yrs old
Ronald Coase 1910
Mickey Spillane 1918
Arne Sucksdorff 1917, Swedish documentary film maker
Former King Michael of Romania 1921
Lena Horne 1917

Some old politicians who have probably been overlooked -

R. Sargent Shriver - VP Candidate in '72 - 90, has alzheimers or however you spell it
Earl Butz - 96, secretary of Agriculture in the 70s
Claiborne Pell - 88(?), Popular US Senator from Maryland, has parkinsons.
E. Gough Whitlam, Australian PM, 89 and said to be in " declining health"
Anthony Mamo - 96, Former Malta President
Alfonso López Michelsen - 92, Former Colombia President
Robet Byrd - 88, US Senator West Virginia, he is still a Senator and up for reelection this year, how long can he last?

Lesser knowns -

Arthur Link - 91, Governor of North Dakota in the 70s
Cliff Hansen - 93, US Senator Wyoming
Albert Roselini - 95, Governor of Washington
George Smathers - 92, US Senator Florida
Bill Avery - 94, Governor of Kansas


I know, most of these arent famous enough, but it may be something to look into.

A very strong possibility for next year (I hope you won't regret it that you overlooked him for 2006) is HRH Jean Benoit Guillaume Robert Antoine Louis Marie Adolphe Marc d'Aviano, the former archduke of Luxembourg, born january 5, 1921. His wife died last year, and he's looking extremely frail.

I think they're regretting a few things already... one more or less won't make much of a difference. :lol:

His name is Edward Gough Whitlam, b. July 11th, 1916.

He has been in poor health for the last couple of years, so I definitely think he should be considered for next year's list.

Yeltsin should always be hoverring about there BB. But Yeager seems to be doing OK, still flying last I read.

I'm glad you ask, he does indeed! According to wiki, his full title is:
by the Grace of God, Grand Duke of Luxembourg, Duke of Nassau, Prince of Bourbon of Parma, Count Palatine of the Rhine, Count of Sayn, Königstein, Katzenellenbogen and Diez, Burgrave of Hammerstein, Lord of Mahlberg, Wiesbaden, Idstein, Merenberg, Limburg and Eppstein.

I happen to know that the Dutch queen, also a Nassau, and a distant relative to Grand Duke Jean, has even more names. Would anyone like to compare them with Elizabeth? The British monarch used to be king of almost everything, but you're empire is not what it used to be, is it?

Mehmet Ali Agca, 48 the man who shot the pope in 1981 is due to be released from prison tomorrow:

" The Italian judge who investigated the 1981 murder attempt on John Paul II has warned the Turkish would-be assassin that his life will be "in grave danger" when he is released from jail because he "knows too much". "
Sometimes when we see the eyes- those horrible times when we see the eyes,eyes that ... that have no soul - then we know a darkness.
