    he died 26 or so years ago, so lets hope he continues to rest in peace. I was thinking for current deaths like Tony Snow etc.

    As long as there are at least two people alive in the middle east, we'll never have peace.
    Oh my God. You are so politically incorrect, or something. Did your hands burn when you typed that?

    Anyway, I laughed. Loudly. I scared my cat.

    Estelle Getty has passed away. The first Golden Girl.

    ESTELLE GETTY - DEAD

    One of the Golden Girls has died.

    Estelle Getty, who played Bea Arthur's mother (even though Arthur was a year older in real life) on the NBC hit comedy Golden Girls (which also starred Betty White and Rue McClanahan), passed away this morning in Los Angeles. Getty was 84 years old and had been suffering from a disease known as Lewy Body Dementia for a number of years.

    Getty appeared in several other TV shows over the years, including the Golden Girls spinoff The Golden Palace (which also starred a young Don Cheadle), Empty Nest, Nurses, Brotherly Love, Mad About You, Touched By An Angel, Blossom, Newhart, Hotel, and many others. She also appeared in the movies Tootsie, Mask, Mannequin, and Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot!

    Interesting trivia: Getty played her Sophia Petrillo character in no less than five different shows: Golden Girls, Empty Nest, The Golden Palace, Nurses, and Blossom. That's gotta be some sort of record. She also played a character named Sophia in an episode of Ladies Man in 2000, though the character had a different last name.
