Who will be next?

Lynd Ward dying

Seems like a lot of celebs have been dying lately. So I thought, “Hmm, who will be next?” Like I’m gonna win some big prize if I accurately predict the next one to die.

I found this site that does a survey of nearly 650 celebs and people vote on their likelihood of dying. Kind of macabre. Kinda interesting for those who have lots of free time:

Fidel Castro tops the list (almost). Nancy Reagan ranks 23rd on the list, and Steve Jobs ranks #26.

By the way, the photo above is from a fabulous, rare book I found in a small town in Colorado. It’s a 1930 printing of Lynd Ward‘s “Madman’s Drum” – a novel in woodcuts.
