Goodnight, Ackmena: Bea Arthur dies at 86

Bea as Ackmena

A family spokesman has announced that Bea Arthur died at home early this morning. The actress had been suffering from cancer.

Arthur may be best known as one of the stars of the classic 80′s sitcom Golden Girls, but to those of us entrenched in the GFFA she will always be Ackmena, night shift bartender of the Cantina in the Holiday Special.

    Ah, man, that’s a real shame. She was always so great at what she did, and seemed like a really classy lady. Hope she’s finding rest.
