When the hell is Elizabeth Taylor going to be on this list?? I know I am evil :)

Vicki said...

OMG you are way to funny. How old is she anyway? And how did I not know that Evil died??

She's only 75!! She's been on deaths door for one thing or another for years and years, wish she'd go already and put me out of my misery. I only knew that Evel died cause I saw it on the cover of one of the rag mags in the grocery store, I never heard about it on the news or anything.

Forgot about Sidney also. I LOVE his books.

joanne said...

Yeah he has some great books!

Don't forget Kurt Vonnegut and Norman Mailer - perhaps two of the last "Literary Celebrities" we had left from that generation.
