Here's someone else whom I half expected would outlive us all: Edward Teller is dead. Interestingly enough, this is another case (along with Bob Hope's) of a New York Times obituary where the author (in this case, the late science writer Walter Sullivan) died before the subject of the obituary did. Apparently this happens more often than you'd think. (I haven't checked the status of the author of yesterday's Leni Riefenstahl obituary, but I'm worried about him.)
