off to the Shady Pines in the sky...

Dorothy Zbornak Hollingsworth (nee Petrillo)... has departed.

Along with the definitive Vera Charles with her...

AND - NO - contrary to popular belief - were I to take the "Which Golden Girl Are You?" quiz - I wouldn't come up as Dorothy.

RIP Bea Arthur [Bernice Frankel]

"After being in the business for such a long time, I've done everything but rodeo and porno."

[last year as Carrie Bradshaw in a TVLand short featuring Bea, Sally Struthers, Katherine Helmond and Charlotte Rae as the Sex in the City gals]

Iced for a cause...

Today is Iced Coffee Appreciation Day.

It's a sunny day here in Greenville. A good day for an iced coffee beverage.

Live near a Dunkin' Donuts? GO. A small Dunkin' Iced Coffee is only 50 cents today. For every small Iced Coffee purchased today - Dunkin' Donuts will donate 5 cents to Homes for Our Troops - a national organization that helps create specially-adapted homes for differently-abled veterans.

The absurdity of the tea bag...

AND no...I don't believe the vast majority of the tri-corner hat crowd has ANY clue that when they say they're "teabagging" it has giggle inducing effects on many...

SO - "Taxed Enough Already!" Really? Rachel Maddow pointed an amazing irony out this evening. Many of these so-called protests today on Tax Day were held in public parks. Created with?!?! The safety of the protesters was insured by a police presence. Paid for by?!?! Hmmm...

AND the best thing she noted this evening is that the whole tea party phenomenon surrounding the stimulus package and business bailouts [IF I understood her correctly] was, in some way, shape or form, developed by the same DC PR firm that reps [repped?] bailout recipients AIG and others. Here in South Carolina - one protest was organized by the local head of one-note, anti-gay fringe group American Family Association. Nice to see they've diversified.

I could go for a nice unsweetened iced tea.
