    Gohmert is braindead already, but if he were to perish it would be a bigger shock to the Trump base than an old black man.

    Cain has to be the largest political or celebratory figure in the U.S. to die of the 'rona at this point, right?

    I mean, besides Joe Diffie.

    Not sure where John Prine ranks as a celebrity. More revered than famous?

    Tom Dempsey was part of the sports consciousness for a long time. A true American legend. Nothing against the others but that was the biggest one for me.

    Just considered Herman another Uncle Remus.

    John Prine has never had a charting Hot 100 single. Then again, I don't think Wilco has either.

    Cain was that POC on every corporate board of directors you've never heard of. He did a lot of great things with Godfather's Pizza - but I don't think the GOP really cared.

    Roy Horn was a pretty big name, even if 99.8 percent of people didn't know his last name.

    He did co-write “You Never Even Called Me...” but didn’t take credit. It made the Country charts.

    I agree he isn’t very famous, just revered by half the musicians I am into.

    GOP treats POC like Henry Hill and Jimmy Conway in Goodfellas: you can earn but you’re never going to be made guys.
