World, get to know him before it’s too late: Your new oldest person is 114-year-old Kama Chinen of Japan, after 115-year-old Gertrude Baines died on Friday. Baines liked bacon and fried chicken, but never drank, smoke, or fooled around. She was born in 1894, when Grover Cleveland was president. “'I'm glad I'm here. I don't care if I live a hundred more,'' she said after voting for Barack Obama for president. ''I enjoy nothing but eating and sleeping.” She spent her final days watching her favorite TV show—The Jerry Springer Show.
