He's not famous for his illness...nor is he on death row "state mandated"...so he should be eligible.


Correct. An example of this would be Terri Schiavo. Also...

Oh fiddlesticks, I failed to read the rules and assumed age earned points directly, not just as a tiebreaker. Hence why my list is full of sick people and potential assassination targets, rather than just nonagenarians. Well, I'm winning the game in my head, that's what counts, right?

Also, before it comes up for real, can I get a ruling on whether I'll get credit for Kim Jong-Un or Biletsky if they are mysteriously disappeared and most international news organizations believe them likely dead?
