Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

There are four survivors of the San Francisco earthquake still breathing and they got worldwide news coverage when they came together this week. So when we're down to one s/he might be a shoo-in pick for a few dead pool points.

With the death of Sally Ride, only eight people mentioned in the lyrics to "We Didn't Start the Fire" are still alive: Queen Elizabeth II, Brigitte Bardot, Fidel Castro, Chubby Checker, Bob Dylan, John Glenn, Doris Day and Bernie Goetz.

I'd guess that at least five of those are gonna outlive Billy Joel.

I would go with 3 (QEII, BB & Mr Zimmermann). I will freely admit that I have no idea who Bernard Goetz is.

Looking through Wikipedia for old American politicians, I took an interest in surviving members of presidential cabinets. The last member of the Kennedy administration died in 2010, but there are still a few members of the Johnson and Nixon administrations kicking around.

Johnson (1963 - 1969)
Attorney General (1967 - 1969) - Ramsey Clark (Born. 1927) (Currently employed by dictators on trial)
Postmaster General (1968 - 1969) - W. Marvin Watson (Born. 1924)
Secretary of Transportation (1967 - 1969) - Alan Stephenson Boyd (Born. 1922) (The first Transportation Secretary ever)

Nixon (1969 - 1974)
Secretary of State (1969 - 1977) - Henry Kissinger (Born. 1923)
Secretary of the Treasury (1972 - 1974) & Secretary of Labor (1969 - 1970) - George P. Shultz (Born. 1920) (Also Reagan's Secretary of State)
Secretary of Defense (1969 - 1973) - Melvin R. Laird (Born. 1922)
Secretary of Defense (1974 - 1975) - James R. Schlesinger (Born. 1929)
Secretary of Commerce (1972 - 1973) - Peter G. Peterson (Born. 1926)
Secretary of Commerce (1973 - 1975) - Frederick B. Dent (Born. 1922)
