In Memoriam

Bea Arthur
Whoever said "timing is everything" was talking about Bea Arthur. No line ever written for her was as funny as the arresting looks she could give. Anyone can recite a funny line. It takes a comic genius like Bea Arthur to master the silent moment, the pause pregnant with innuendo. As Vera Charles, Maude, and Dorothy her acid tongue burned deep; but her sharp piercing glare cut to the bone. The funny bone that is.
