Somebody better go find that girl, the one they called IE+. I feel the honour of writing his dreaded headline should go to her.

After the affair he put that in his will, so the rumour goes.

A sad day! Claude LÚvi-Strauss was the greatest anthropologist and an inspiration for me and a lot of others around the world. What does he see now with a view from afar...?

Yep, I concure. A sad day! Claude LÚvi-Strauss was the greatest anthropologist I removed totally from my 2008 list of 50 names, only to religate him into my 2009 "68 name" list. Doh. :)

Bloomberg wire is reporting:
By David Henry
Nov. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Claude Levi-Strauss, the French
social anthropologist who influenced generations of
intellectuals with his ideas on culture and said the human
species would become extinct, has died. He was 100.

:) Does he get a cookie for being a smart old Jew? Looks like plenty are dropping at the end of the year.

There's a thread somewhere on the forum that a lot of puns were posted for the various 'candidates'. Buggered if I can find it now.
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

His deathdate should be corrected, it's actually October 30th not November 3rd.

Today we celebrate the birthday of Claude LÚvi-Strauss for the first time, when he's not around. Quite a funny feeling. A sad feeling. And he won't be here at deathlist.net anymore either in the future. I will surely miss coming to this website every year at November 28 to celebrate this great anthropologist. This had become almost a ritual for me, but now an era has ended, though I will remember him in great many other ways than at this website. Thanks for some exciting debates throughout the years and good luck with your scores next year!

What about the 'details-to-follow' on the frontpage? Are we waiting for CLS to come back? That should have happened within three days, me thinks, so I doubt it will ever occur...
