Re: Whitney Houston Dead
As morbid as it sounds, the death pools have some basis in reality.
I'm willing to bet Lindsay Lohan has a pre-written obit, for example. Charlie Sheen would be another. Basically they look for anyone living the crackhead lifestyle and they get to work.
And of course if you're just old, they'll write one too.
I remember one time, CNN accidentally left their "obituary" directory unsecured and people found a whole host of templates for celebrities and politicians who were speculated to be on their way out.
