Walter B. Jones Jr., a North Carolina congressman who so enthusiastically supported the 2003 invasion of Iraq that he argued for the french fries and French toast served in House cafeterias to be called “freedom fries” and “freedom toast” — a jab at France for its opposition to the war. He later underwent a dramatic change of heart and emerged as a prominent Republican critic of the war, died Feb. 10, on his 76th birthday.

Thing is: Those were my three "almost certain hits". I just lucked out that they obliged so quickly.

There are some "almost certain hits" that I missed, and experience has shown that a few other contestants do better at picking from among more generic poor-health/old-age options.

But it is kinda nice that one month's "work" almost got me to the score I had last year.
