One of the more obvious choices for the Ghoul Pool was Charlton Heston: actor, gun rights activist, and a sufferer of Alzhemier’s Disease. His name was on my list, and as a result of his passing, I score 9 points, putting me in second place. (The nine points come from the fact that one point is scored for each year in the person’s age under 100, divided in half in cases of suicide, drugs, or terminal illness.)
With nobody remaining on my original draft list, I choose Patrick Swayze as my replacement on the list. Granted, he’ll only be worth half the points because of his recent diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, but I know there are someone who wanted to take him so I’ll lay claim on him first.
Once again, the scores are:
EDIT: Apparently, his age was confirmed at 84, so that means I only get 8 points. Oh well.
