Perhaps this should be clarified, as I already have a list of people I'm fairly certain won't see 2013, who are not on their death bed unless things have escalated in VERY recent news cycles.
Also, non-deathbed picks are scored like normal regardless of how late one enters [so long as they don't witness the death, then jump on CP before it hits the news].
Let's say from now until 1-13-12 anyone is fair game. I don't think anyone is really on the ol' deathbed really.
I will rewrite the rules to reflect that, now.
You're Swaze thing doesn't really apply. I'm thinking more along the lines of when we knew within a week that Reagan was dying and Gerald Ford for that matter...
You know, it's all over the news. Someone is about to croak, they do retrospect pieces, etc...
