DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.

There are also several Deathrace entrants who care very much, since he - like Susan Atkins - is apparently in the throes of a chronic condition that could do for him in time to rack up at least 300 Deathrace points.

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

I'd warn caution - everyone expected Warren Zevon to be the first hit of 2003, he could go any day, and he hung till September!

If anything, I'd wager the First of the year is one no one really expects.

Llewellyn was in a hospice and righting wrongs - like his fall out with his brother - a few weeks before the end of the year. Non of which means he'll be the first hit, but it does suggest September is optimistic beyond reason.

And I make that bonus points in the DDP for dying on the 13th.

Llewellyn dies, Havel in hospital, Swayze dancing with death, Bobby Robson looking like death warmed up - 2009 looks like getting off to a strong start.
