Obits In 2007

Maybe it's the same as it ever was and I'm just noticing it more, but it seems like there have been a lot of famous deaths in 2007. According to our friends at Dead or Alive?, just in the past six months we've lost Boris Yeltsin, Tommy Newsome, David Halberstam, Jerry Falwell, Tom Snyder, Ingmar Bergman, Bill Walsh, Merv Griffin, Richard Jewell, Luciano Pavarotti, Marcel Marceau, and Lady Bird Johnson to name but a few. Also of note, two people that are forever intertwined: Charles Nelson Reilly and Brett Somers. Ah, Match Game...where would the 70s have been without it?
