Bea Arthur has always been one of my favourites among stage and television talents. Her comic style, her forthright attitude and her commitment to so many causes I fully endorsed. I will miss even the rare appearances of the past few years. Here is a clip of her 2005 appearance on Comedy Central's roast of Pamela Anderson:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHd3MrMbnzY
At one of the events I attended at Blue Metropolis on Saturday evening, Jian Ghomeshi informed us of her death. He spoke admiringly of Bea Arthur; he had the opportunity to observe her perform at the Juste pour rire comedy festival and told us that she worked the audience in her room like the seasoned performer she was.
