Gertrude Baines, the 115-year-old woman believed to be the oldest living human being, died this morning in her sleep, likely of a heart attack. Ms. Baines, who was born during the first Cleveland Administration, has been living in a convalescent home in Los Angeles for the last ten years, gumming her bacon and fried chicken (she wore no dentures) and watching The Jerry Springer Show. Despite outliving her entire family, Ms. Baines said she loved life and wouldn't mind living another 100 years. She voted for Obama "because he's for the colored," and even though she saw the beginning and end of the 20th century and then some, she never thought she'd live to see a black man become President. The oldest living person now is believed to be Kama Chinen, age 114, who lives in Japan.
