George Melly dies on schedule
The wonderful George Melly has popped off at 80 - good age considering all the illneses he wrote so entertainingly about over the years. He was due to die this year according to the evil Death List website. Other famous people expected to die this year include Gore Vidal (I think not), Ariel Sharon (could linger yet), Bill Deedes (the very idea!), Harold Pinter (" ") and Olivia de Havilland ("Who's she?" I can hear Daughter-of-a-bitch mewing, as her mummy cuts up her asparagus spear). I must write to Olivia for a final interview and get her to bitch about her sister Joan Fontaine.
