...in the interest of making this a true archive of celebrity passing.

What, you mean like this one Rob?

The Official R.I.P. Archive   ;)

 :P

Well, like that one - but better because it is wholly dependent on rebelscum members and hinges on which one posts it first.  I'm starting to think that JD regulars should be excluded from the list for any celebrity deaths they post from here on forward since the fun goes out the window if you know about this thread.

There's also the predominant factor that Darth Big Boy is pulling down about 50% of these - it's really to see whether or not he gets there first.

Superior to that other thread in most ways.

Also just added Richard Harris - reported by Boba_Binks.

Now there are mixed signals coming out of Arafat's hospital - some are saying he's clinically dead - others only saying that 'he's alive'

We might have a 'celebrity' - well, famous person - die today!
