Bea Arthur has passed away

Y'all have probably heard the sad news by now that Bea Arthur died yesterday at the age of 86.

Arthur first found stardom on Broadway, then branched out into television with Maude on CBS from 1972 to 1978. My generation though will have their fondest memories of Arthur from her role as Dorothy Zbornak: the sarcastic substitute teacher from NBC's hit sitcom The Golden Girls.

Yes, Bea Arthur was a very talented lady. So talented in fact, that her presence was the one saving grace to be found in that irredeemable schlockfest for the ages, 1978's The Star Wars Holiday Special...

Rest in peace Bea Arthur. And "Thank you for being a friend..."
