Randy Pausch is, alas, dead at 47. That gives me 6 points and a tie for third place.
Sadly, Estelle Getty too has passed on, albeit at the more advanced age of 84.
As of now, the person in first place has 8 points, the person in second place has 7, and I'm tied with one other on 6 points. (Of course, this assumes that Pausch will make the New York Times obituary page, which I presume he will. He was on Oprah, fer Crissakes.)
