CNN is doing the honors this year. Mickey Rooney was a particularly short person who died this year.
We’re just going to let CNN do the honors this year. Highlights include porn star Harry Reems and racecar driver Dick Trickle.
FoxNews.com has a surprisingly lengthy stiff list slide show starting with Art Clokey, inventor of Gumby, and ending with the twin brothers who took part in the first organ transplant. And a slew of famous dead folks in-between.

Over on Fox News they have a slide show of Stars Who Snuffed In ’09.
The most prevalent cause of death: cancer (still number one).
The most agonizing cause of death: cancer (maintaining it’s 2-for-2 yearly record).
The absolute stupidest way to die: by hanging yourself in a hotel room closet while masturbating. From now on this form of self-extinction will be known as “doing a David Carradine”.
