In a dark mood. Your predictions of the famous/infamous who will Kick the bucket this year.

I'll start off with an easy one: Hugo Chavez, el Presidente of Venezuela.

Philip - he of the stent operation. Followed by much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Actually that would have been a fairly certain bet, given age for any normal pensioner - but royalty,
they'll start adding cybernetics.

Are you referring to the inbred child from a family of inbred German loons?

El Presidente might just come in at the last minute for me.

Not doing so well.

Lots of kids in Connecticut and a footballer and his wife.

Hopefully most of you have watched this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1ijkccD9_8

No, he doesn't. You want to hear somebody making a good point? Listen to this guy (the whole thing, it's only a minute and half long):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5dBOR2V9nU

The problem is society, not guns. Broken homes, glorification of violence, violence as entertainment, substance abuse, lemming-like behavior of people ostracizing and bullying anybody who is different, treating behavior in children with drugs, etc., etc., etc.

The people screaming about gun control because of this incident are either idiots or left-wing authoritarians seeking to eliminate the power to resist their left-wing authoritarian agenda. Instead, they ought to be taking some responsibility for the underlying problems and working to resolve them.

He did make one good point: "you take away guns from american history ... and there is no platform for Bob Costas to share his views on national television". If that isn't a good enough argument for gun control, I don't know what is.
