Local Members Of Diabetes Foundation Mourn Loss Of Mary Tyler Moore

April AlvarezJan 28, 2017

I was lucky enough to be the News Daily TV columnist in the mid-'70's when "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" was at the zenith of American affections as well as her life's achievement.

It was predictable that when Mary Tyler Moore died at 80, everyone wanted to remember her as Laura Petrie and Mary Richards.

"Outside of her family, I don't think there was anyone more proud of her than I was", Van Dyke told The Hollywood Reporter.

Nintendo Switch Will Sell 40 Million Consoles By 2020 According To Analysts
Pre-orders for the console sold out within days, and it's hard to know when or if more will be made available by retailers. The figure is significant considering Switch's predecessor Wii U has sold 14 million units since its launch in 2014.

"After All" (10p.m. Friday, Jan. 27, Channel 9, ABC): ABC replays her interviews with Barbara Walters while looking back on her first TV commercials, then "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and her iconic, inspirational role as the unmarried professional career woman Mary Richards on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show". She won a 1980 Tony Award for playing a quadriplegic sculptor in "Whose Life Is It Anyway?" and an Emmy for her role as a villainous orphanage director in the TV production "Stolen Babies" (1993). Redford has always maintained that it was his passing view of a serious Moore passing by his Malibu Beach House that inspired him to cast her as the hard, embittered mother in "Ordinary People". She's also constantly expected to listen to the travails of middle-aged white men enraged about what they don't have. Without Mary Richards there isn't Leslie Knope, whose indefatigable positivity and boundless ambition are Mary turned up to 100, or Hannah Horvath and all her willfully irksome ilk, characters conceived both in opposition to the contagiously likeable Mary and also in her image, young working women devoted to figuring out exactly who they are. Their MTM enterprises produced series like St. Elsewhere, Hill Street Blues and The Bob Newhart Show. She was THE BEST!

Kendall said it's no secret she's a fan. My reflex action wasn't to move toward her but to turn and move away - to leave the goddess alone atop Olympus. But what she represented went beyond gender. She brought a hint of fragility to these characters, of the way we all work sometimes to hold it together, that put viewers squarely on her side. She was 80 years old and was known to die of cardiopulmonary disease.

According to NY Times, her family confirmed that the actress died due to cardiopulmonary arrest after she had been contracted with pneumonia at Greenwich Hospital.

Balotelli Italian striker accuses Bastia fans of racial abuse
The player was subject to racial abuse by Roma fans when he was contracted to play with AC Milan in 2013. Last weekend, it was held 0-0 at home by struggling Metz, with Balotelli suspended for that game.

But not before she caused one of the more famous kerfuffles in TV history. Coming into the role of Laura, she brought a lot of herself, and one thing she felt strongly about was her trousers.

"She was one of the coolest, one of the classiest, one of the funniest people ever".
