Death of our celebrities: When's America going to wake up?

Seriously, how many celebrities have to die before their time? If anything, celebrities are at the apex of health mostly because they can afford it. Sure, some take drugs, and shit, but I know horrific junkies who make it to old age without any resources at all. They survive in the streets for decades, yet, we're supposed to believe that celebrities just keel over and die in their prime? If not that, than the proverbial plane/helicopter crash or suicide.

Now, of course, there are some authentic deaths here, but, there is no way that all of these young people died without the intervention of the sinister ptb. I include no one over 60, even tho I think Don Cornelius should be included .

OP, you're really off base on this.

A great many young people who are not famous die quite young, tragic as that may be.

And the vast majority of celebrities, like the vast majority of the public at large, do not die young.

Okay, yes, shit happens, but if look at the pool of celebrities as a microcosm, you will see that the percentage of those who die young is much higher than in the gen pop.

So, I'll put my neck out there, and predict. I predict James Franco will, sadly, die before the release of one of his films. Not sure exactly when, but before he's 40.

Joseph Gordon Levitt, whose brother already died in 2010, cast In 'Batman: The Dark Knight Rises' in another one

Yes, R27, you're on to something.

Papa” John Phillips - son of U.S. Marine Corp Captain Claude Andrew Phillips, and who attended a series of elite military prep schools in D.C. area, culminating in an appointment to the prestigious U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, and who, right afterwards married Susie Adams, a direct descendant of ‘Founding Father’ John Adams- more so than probably any of the other illustrious residents of Laurel Canyon, played a major role in spreading the emerging youth ‘counterculture’ across America. His contribution will be twofold:

First, co-organized (along with Manson associate Terry Melcher) the famed Monterrey Pop Festival, which, through unprecedented media exposure, will give mainstream America its first real look at the music and fashions of the nascent ‘hippie’ movement.

Second, Phillips penned an insipid song known as “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair),” which will quickly rise to the top of the charts. Along with the Monterrey Pop Festival, the song will be instrumental in luring the disenfranchised (a preponderance of under-aged runaways) to San Francisco to create the Haight-Asbury phenomenon and the famed 1967 “Summer of Love.”

I remember taking a guided tour in Hollywood where the tour guide that over 500 new residents arrive in LA every day. With such large numbers of young people constantly arriving and assumingly a large percentage are there to break into show biz, it makes sense that there would be greater concentration of young deaths.

That's also assuming that all the deaths on OP 's list took place in or near Hollywood. ( what the PTB call TMZ ... the 30 Mile Zone from the Hollywood sign)
