Bea Arthur RIP



Bea Arthur has died. I can't believe it. I grew up watching Bea Arthur, first as Maude, and then of course, like everyone else, an entire decade as the incomparable Dorothy Zbornak. She was MAJ Bea Arthur.

With her deep voice and ballsy character, she tackled such issues as racism and women's rights, and was one of the first to address the AIDS pandemic at a time when no one else would. She was a legend and a trailblazer and there will never be another like her.

RIP Bea Arthur.
