PEOPLE I HAVE OUTLIVED

Barring some sort of fatal tragedy before Tuesday the 20th, I will turn 24. With this birthday I will have officially outlived River Phoneix.

Others I have now outlived:

ALEXEI ROMANOV, 13, ASSASSINATION
PETER II TSAR OF RUSSIA, 14, SMALLPOX

EDWARD VI OF ENGLAND, 15, TUBERCULOSIS
ANNE FRANK, 15, TYPHUS
GRAND DUTCHESS ANASTASIA, 17, ASSASSINATION
TUTANKHAMUN, 18, GANGRENE
RONNIE CALDWELL, 18, PLANE CRASH
JOHN SPENSE, 18, SUICIDE
JOAN OF ARC, 19, BURNED ON STAKE
BILLY THE KID, 20, GUNSHOT
SID VICIOUS, 21, OVERDOSE
BUDDY HOLLY, 22, PLANE CRASH
FREDDIE PRINZE, 22, SUICIDE
IAN CURTIS, 23, SUICIDE

And, of course, RIVER PHONEIX, 23, "Multiple Drug Toxicity" which would be an "overdose" for the rest of us.

If 17 and 22 didn't get me, I think I'm good for another few years. Also, I'm pretty sure Tuberculosis and Smallpox aren't going to get me.


"Death by FOX News", perhaps?

The Star
(1)

Twinkle, twinkle, little star!

How I wonder what you are,

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky.

(2)

When the blazing sun is gone,

When he nothing shines upon,

Then you show your little light,

Twinkle, twinkle all the night.
(3)

The dark blue sky you keep

And often thro' my curtains peep,

For you never shut your eye

Till the sun is in the sky.

(4)

'Tis your bright and tiny spark

Lights the traveler in the dark;

Though I know not what you are
Twinkle, twinkle, little star!
