    I was once working on a show and for the fun of it all 30 of us wrote to a celebrity to see who would respond. I wrote to Bea Arthur and told her how much I had enjoyed her work. She was the only one to write back. I still have her picture post card. She was really amazing. I never get tired of her.

    Aunt Maude was more of a man than any other character in All In the Family. Actually, she was more of a man than any character in the Golden Girls too. Until today, she was living proof that you don't need to possess a penis to be a man. She'll be greatly missed.

    Well this one certainly is. I heard about it this afternoon. I was a huge fan, and I'm crushed.
    I generally hate when corporate America cashes in on celebrity deaths, but in this case I really hope this will push Sony to get with the program and finally release the remaining 5 seasons of "Maude" on DVD.
    PS -one of my favourite "Golden Girls" moments here...Getty as Sonny and Bea as Cher!:

    Everybody seems to pan the movie "Mame" starring Lucille Ball and Bea Arthur, but I love it. Bea Arthur as Vera in that movie was just incredible.

    When Estelle Getty died I wondered to myself how long it might be till Bea Arthur passed as well. Unfortunately it wasn't that much longer.
