Death Notice
In the wake of the shockingly apt accidental death of roofing billionaire Ken Hendricks, the Weekend Desk Holiday Disaster Team has issued alerts for the following public figures.

1. Having succumbed to a surge in infection, President Bush will deny his rising fever until it's far too late.

2. Sam Zell will be crushed while dismantling a printing press.

3. Despite a detailed explanation of his symptoms, doctors won't know what to make of Mitt Romney's sudden decline.

4. After underestimating the amount of time required, Barack Obama will consume too much half-baked bread.

5. Roger Clemens will be shot in the ass.

6. Friends of Governor Rod Blagojevich will throw him under a Hannah Montana tour bus somewhere far away from Springfield.

7. Cook County Board President Todd Stroger will continue to drown at an unbelievably slow rate.
