Good night, David
Veteran newsman David Brinkley has died at his Houston home.
Brinkley, 82, cohosted NBC's Huntley-Brinkley Report from 1956 to 1971; in 1981, he moved to ABC, where he became the host of This Week, a position he held for sixteen seasons.
A personal note: While I mourn Mr Brinkley's passing, it scores me 18 points and $20 in the Amish Tech Support Dead Pool.

Mourn, my eye...can you prove conclusively that you had nothing to do with his passing...?
It's all about the points for you, isn't it, Charles?
Mr Simon says that the points do not count if the player had something to do with the death (except in the case of Arafat or Saddam). Mr Simon has already posted the points. I have to assume that he is satisfied that I had nothing to do with Mr Brinkley's demise.
Hmm. Either pay me $10 or I'm telling Laurence you had me push him. :)
Back from negotiating a Middle East settlement, are you? :)
