MARY TYLER MOORE

Damn. She was a wonderful comedic actress. For a time she was part of the best sitcom, maybe the best show, on TV. Damn.

Update:

Not a cute article to try to get something posted, but just to second your "Damn" about MTM.  RIP. She was indeed a wonderful person and her show was SO good.  If you have a chance, you might want to mention that she was very active with JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation), an organization that is near and dear to my heart, as my wife of over 30 years was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes when she was three and, unhappily, my daughter was diagnosed at age 20 (she is now 23).  It is an insidious disease that requires 24/7 maintenance of blood sugar.  It is a completely different disease than Type 2 Diabetes, which usually can be managed with diet and exercise.  Type 1 (Juvenile Diabetes) is an auto-immune disease.  Anyway, TMI I know, but if you have a chance to raise awareness of Type 1, it would be a wonderful thing.  Full disclosure: I am on the Board of my local JDRF Chapter and as mentioned have two family members with the disease. JDRF is one of the most efficient charities in the country and Mary Tyler Moore did so much for us.  Her passing makes me very sad.

All the best,

Jeffrey Brown
