A Brief History of Death

Physicist Stephen Hawking has discovered how time ends* at 76, and 2 players had him on 3 lists: Natalie Tyler had him on both her Old Writers Never Die.... and Diet of Worms lists, while Mike Roche included him on his Celebrities List. They move to the top of the standings in this order.

Congratulations, Natalie and Mike!

The Bannister leads nowhere...

Roger Bannister was the first man to break the 4-minute mile, and he died at the age of 88. Natalie Tyler's Sporting Chance List picks up the solo on her first hit, and dashes up to second place.

Congratulations, Natalie!
