Rue McClanahan 1934-2010

I was always a big fan of The Golden Girls. It was a staple of Friday nights when I was growing up. Sad to see another member of the cast passing away.

Full of sharp writing and spot-on performances I don't think I saw a poor episode. I'm a fan of co-creator Susan Harris in general. Among other shows Harris also created Soap and either wrote or co-wrote every episode.

Above is a ten minute playlist of Rue McLanahan talking about The Golden Girls and appearing in a couple of clips from the show.

Down below is a letter she wrote to my Limmy's Show colleague Omar Raza after he sent her a fan letter. I think it exemplifies her class.
