    OK, I've been back in the USA for almost a whole month (I'll be out-of-country soon enough), but there's something I didn't realize how much I missed about USA popular kulture: Betty White. I obviously have an unresolved crush on Betty White. I've been able to see reruns of The Betty White Show, circa 1954?, as well as catch her continue her schtick late at night with Craig Fergusen(son?). She's a babe. She's a major 'Mericuhn treasure! She's better than Moxie. Dark chocolate has a hard time attracting attention when she enters a room. I want to bear he children!

    I love Betty White and I'm not afraid to admit it.

    Thanks. I feel so much better.

    I have those Betty White shows on dvd, Betty is a great woman who has spent decades championing pet rescue etc... She's an interesting woman w/a great sense of humor and a natural winner!

    What I love about her is how she went from playing a Bitchy career woman on the Mary Tyler Moore Show to a ditsy sweet lady on the Golden Girls.

    I haven't seen it, but I believe she's in "The Proposal" with Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock.
    Personally, I loved that short-lived sitcom she did in the late 70's with John Hillerman. Wish that'd get a DVD release...

    I've seen it, she made the movie adorable...and she was hilarious.

    Best line of the movie was from her:

    "Do you prefer Margaret or "Satan's Mistress"?

    She had other funny lines too...

    Lake Placid. Terrible movie. Great line.

    Betty White is a national treasure.

    She was on "30 Rock" recently.

    Betty White has that nicer-mom-than-yours-from-right-across-the-street appeal, and world-class comic timing. And an innate knowledge about how to combine the two. God bless her, and let's hope we get to go on enjoying her for a long time to come.
