Via a FOIA filing, Government Attic yielded the FBI's official list of notable dead people. (PDF link)
They didn’t put down Keynes as a Communist! The FBI has been taken over by the collectivist conspiracy!
(Already trying to break the Boing Boing election year commenting policy)
… and they haven’t listed Khrushchev as a communist.
That’s more understandable.
Are the FBI more sophisticated than I gave ‘em credit for?
They had a file on Abbott, but not Costello. I bet Lou Costello was paid by the FBI to keep on eye on Bud Abbott.
They also had files on all the Marx Bros, including Zeppo and Gummo.
That must be why the Sopranos referenced that statue to him in NJ.
My life’s ambition: to end up on this list. Preferably boldfaced.
My more likely fate is to end up an atherosclerosis statistic, but one can dream.
