Happy Birthday…Estelle Getty!

Born July 25, 1923 (d. 2008).

While spending a week in a city outside of Detroit helping my wife’s grandma transition from a rehab hospital to home, we rediscovered the comedy gold of The Golden Girls, which was one of my favorite shows as a child and remains incredibly funny.  Getty’s character of Sophia Petrillo is a gem.  A reminder of how few older women (and men, for that matter) are represented in TV comedy now (apart from Betty White).
