Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Oh man, I just the other day read an article where she talked about what was giving her the longevity. She seemed like a really nice lady. RIP.

I remember her from the Mary Tyler Moore show. My grandparents watched it religiously.


And yep, 2021 just had to deliver one more kick square in the nuts.

She was one cool lady.  RIP Betty.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

We recently watched "Hard Rain" because Betty White was in it. I had never heard of the movie, we came up with it by searching for movies she was in. The movie is chock full of 90s celebs including Morgan Freeman, Minnie Driver, Christian Slater, Randy Quaid, and even Ed Asner. She did a great job in her role, and overall the movie was entertaining and relatively believable.

My wife tells me there are a number of magazines in stores right now with "Betty White turns 100!" as their cover story. Too late to change I guess.

Yep, they were being printed and staged for delivery some time, in some cases weeks, before she shuffled off this mortal coil.
