Clare Hollingworth, the Daily Telegraph correspondent who broke the news of World War Two, has died in Hong Kong aged 105.

She was already 27 years old when she delivered that scoop. Holy Cats she lived a long life.

Tommy Allsup, One of Buddy Holly's Crickets. Legend has it, he lost the coin toss to Ritchie Valens Febuary 3, 1959 in Clear Water, Iowa. Though Dion DiMucci, of Dion And The Belmonts claims he won the coin toss, but balked at the exorbitant charge of $36.00 for the flight! Either way, history was made that night.
Exorcist author William Blatty has died, aged 89.

Anthony Armstrong-Jones, better known as Lord Snowdon, former husband of Princess Margaret, died last week aged 86:
Actor Miguel Ferrer died Thursday following a battle with throat cancer; he was 61 years old.
61 is way too early to go. Word has it he was on the set of the "Twin Peaks" sequel reprising his role as Albert when he was taken to the hospital.
This was really sad to hear. Cancer claims yet another at a far too young age.
Loved him in the hilarious "Hot Shots" films.
Some people you just expect to live forever. And they should.
