    I didn't know of some of these and question the status of others. Many I have never heard of.

    As for Mickey Spillane, wasnt his funeral held in a kingdom hall? and if so, that would make me think he had been reinstated before he died.

    Of the people I've heard of, these three I didn't know about.

    Naomi Campbell
    Lark Voorhies
    Gary Gygax

    That last one COMPLETELY BLOWS MY MIND and I have a hard time believing it considering the Society's stand on DND and the fact that he's still very active in the roleplaying community, including attendance and presenting at cons and such.

    Patti Smyths mom was a JW.....wow.....that is extremely shocking. As for "Prince", I think there should be a question mark now. He had a nasty divorce and his superbowl performance almost seemed like a swipe at the WTS. I wonder if he's really still in.

    Not sure, but either way that is news to me, I already knew Eisenhowers mother was a JW though.

    I find it hard to believe that Akira Toriyama is a dub.

    Most dubs would find DBZ too "violent" for a cartoon.

    Dont know if its true or not, but I heard ages ago that the lead singer of Wheatus, (put out track :Teenage Dirtbag) was raised a jw. And that he stole from the contribution box to buy a guitar or amp or something. Replaced the moolah when he made it bigtime.
