Ray Bradbury was born in 1920, so I think my vote for him stands me in good stead, in so far as winning this pool, as it were, goes.

Here's a picture of him in 1975, for crying out loud:



Anyone who looked like that 34 years ago, you'd expect to be dead by now.

The truth is, I suspect James Garner may well be next on the list...but I just didn't have the heart to cast my ballot accordingly.

I want you to follow Mr. Rockford. Make sure he has a very serious accident. One that'll take him off the case...permanently!

Congrats to Kodos and Mackie, who picked Cronkite in the poll.

I was going to update this thread with the death of Bradbury, but it seems Cronkite beat him to the punch (as did Harry Morgan and Mike Wallace).
