Roll Call of the Dead

“Journalists” love anything that can be wrapped neatly in a box. The less thought that they have to give to it the better. Hence, right after Christmas and before New Year’s Day we can present the annual Roll Call of the Dead. And if you’re a celebrity and you die on New Year’s Eve, somewhere around 10:30 ET, tough. You missed the “Dead”-line. And no, you won’t make next year’s list either.
