LADY BIRD HOSPITALIZED

The former First Lady was hospitalized Friday. The Associated Press reports that Johnson, 94, "is awake and receiving visits from family members and friends."

Also from the story:
Johnson was hospitalized with a stroke in 2002, and it left her with difficulty speaking. But she has continued to make public appearances and last month appeared at an event at the LBJ Library and Museum.
If this goes badly, Addie will earn the point.

Wait... wait wait. So... I'm pretty sure Keith Richards is going to kick the bucket, along with John Q some day.

Can I sign up for those points? And throw in a spot for Ed McMahon, too?

I'll lodge a formal objection here... though I didn't and don't make up the rules. ?!?!?

I was going to write to Lady Bird about doing something about those Haygood Family billboards on the way to Branson and the Jeff Bethurum billboards around Lebanon.

Here, here Sniderman. My sentiments exactly. By the way...I expect you'll be checking out sooner or later. Hey Ron? Do I get a point for Sniderman? Huh? Huh?
This can get to be some very complicated scorekeeping.
Hey, Addie? I hope all is well with you and yours.

Sniderman is right! Put me down for Billy Graham, Jimmy Carter, and the current pope. Ah, throw in Margaret Thatcher as well. She didn't look so well last time I saw her.

Hey Dave- can we get retroactive points? Such as I'm pretty sure no one has been awarded points for Abraham Lincoln, King Henry VIII, Josef Stalin, etc.

I'm pretty sure Generalissimo Franco is still dead.

Ron, pull in the reins dude. This can get out of hand.
