Rue McClanahan: She Made People Laugh

      The world is a little bit sadder today due to the death of this wonderful and funny woman. I will always remember the first time I saw her, as a child, when she was appearing on Broadway in Mame with Angela Lanbury. I loved her then and as Maude and of course as the witty and charming Dorothy on the ‘Golden Girls’.

      One of my fraternity brothers in college used to call me Dorothy because I was such smart ass, I so I kind of indentified with some of her characters in that sense.

      I’ll miss Bea Arthur and appreciate what she did to move this country forward, socially.

      She was certainly a class act. It’s weird actually thinking that one of the golden girls isn’t around anymore.
