Does it have to be somebody famous?
Famous people die in threes. I believe this phenomenon is more powerful than coincidence, more pervasive than a conspiracy, and more interesting than a law of physics. It's in these mini-trinities that the famous among us reach their true apotheosis. There are two rules for a proper celebrity death-trio:
1) The three deaths must be close to each other: generally less than a month from the first to the last.
2) The three celebrities must be somehow equivalently famous or otherwise linked.
The second rule is most interesting. In many cases, the linkage is obscure. But as the cosmos hands us these death-trios, we can learn significant Truths about culture, human psychology, and the gestalt of history when we seek to interpret these linkages.
Brian Keith (June 24)
Robert Mitchum (July 1)
Charles Kuralt (July 4)
The classics. (similar to the current Reagen/Charles/??? cycle)
Jacques Cousteau (June 25)
Jimmy Stewart (July 2)
Gianni Versace (July 15)
Another good standard death-trio. These three fit as comfortably as an old sweater.
Diana, Princess of Wales (August 31)
Mother Teresa (September 5)
Sir Georg Solti (September 5)
Probably the most controversial death-trio of recent decades. Who could possibly fit with two such prominent and closely linked women as the Princess and the Mother? We are given only two candidates: Solti and Mobutu. After much consideration, I choose Solti. You may disagree, but remember: if we study and meditate on the raw material fate has given us, we will find insight. (continues)

It's not JPII. There's too much prophecy left before that can happen. If, by chance it does, then we really are doomed.
