In loving memory of Beatrice Arthur.
Beatrice "Bea" Arthur (born Bernice Frankel, May 13, 1922 – April 25, 2009) was an American actress, comedian, and singer whose career spanned seven decades.
Arthur achieved fame as the character Maude Findlay on the 1970s sitcoms All in the Family (1971–72) and Maude (1972–78), and as Dorothy Zbornak on the 1980s sitcom The Golden Girls (1985–92), winning Emmy Awards for both roles. A stage actress both before and after her television success, she won the Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her performance as Vera Charles in the original cast of Mame (1966).
Anyone else find that whole story about her having a blood problem at age 16 and so went to boarding school a bit ridiculous and unbelievable??
I think first you would know the name of the malady you've been diagnosed with, second, I highly doubt that's the preferred method of treatment for blood not clotting- boarding school, strange. Also that it would just work itself out eventually and then that's it, never have to think about this malady again. Just fishy as hell
Makes me so disappointed to hear the producer saying he shouldn't have done golden palace, like it was some colossal failure because I love that show, I wish that it would have gone on because it was awesome!
Bea Arthur was and always will be a true American treasure. I looked at her son Matthew's Facebook page and saw a picture of his mom (Bea) and her grandkids. Who knows maybe one of them will grow up to be the next Bea Arthur and make their grandma proud! Love you Bea! 💜💛💜💛

Mine is when mrs claxton dies and rose is at the table and says to dorothy, "why do people die?" And then bea says " I dont even know why fools fall in love". The delivery was just perfect
According to Elaine Stritch in her "At Liberty" show, she auditioned for the role of Dorothy but did not get along w/ Golden Girls creator Susan Harris. Look for it on here -- it's a hilarious story =^)
I've loved her since I was a child. I even named my first car after her. A 96' Honda, it was temperamental, had been there done that, and was loyal even after the countless times people had tried to steal her.
To isolate the mobilization-induced labor supply shift, the authors exploit the fact that the fraction of males serving in the war was not uniform across states. For example, in Massachusetts, Oregon, and Utah, almost 55 percent of males between the ages of 18 and 44 left civilian work to serve in the war. In Georgia, the Dakotas, and the Carolinas, this number ranged between 40 and 45 percent. The state differences in war mobilization actually reflect a variety of factors. The Selective Services guidelines for deferments were based on marital status, fatherhood, essential skills for civilian war production, and temporary medical disabilities, but left considerable discretion to the local boards. Because of the importance of maintaining a strong food supply to support the war, an important consideration for deferment was farm employment.
States with a high percentage of farmers had substantially lower mobilization rates, and this explains a considerable share of the state variation in mobilization rates.
The authors show that in states with greater war mobilization of men, women worked more after the war and in 1950, but not in 1940. This differential does not appear to be explained by other cross-state differences or possible demand factors, and is not present in the 1940 data nor does a similar trend recur in the decade of the 1950s. The authors interpret these differentials as labor supply shifts induced by the War. Acemoglu, Autor, and Lyle believe these cross-state changes in female employment were caused by greater participation of women during the war years, with some of those women staying on. War changed womens preferences, opportunities, and information about available work.
