Been and Gone: Golden Girl Estelle Getty
Did you hear that bottomless high-pitched shriek earlier this morning? That was the sound of the nation's gay men getting the news that the great Estelle Getty, The Golden Girls' Sophia Petrillo and the old woman that every gay man wants to be, has died at age 84. Estelle was a classy dame, and she should be an inspiration to all of us--she didn't get her signature role until she was in her 60s. It's never too late! RIP, Ma.
