I don't want to be accused of jumping the gun, so I won't mention that John Paul Stevens passed away. I also won't mention that he was on my list, giving me two points. Nor will I mention that two others picked Justice Stevens as well, including Minneapolitan, who keeps the lead with 3 points.

Finally, I have no intention of posting this link which, had I posted it, would point to an article about Justice Stevens' death.
