Mary Tyler Moore, RIP -- January 26, 2017

I was sad to learn of the passing of Mary Tyler Moore.  I first saw her in reruns of The Dick Van Dyke Show.  Later I watched The Mary Tyler Moore Show on first run or rerun.  "The Death of Chuckles" was one of the best sitcom episodes I have ever seen.  Mary was always delightful.  Mary and Dick Van Dyke were a team.  She played a housewife, but insisted on dressing like a real person.  On her own show, she played in independent woman who had to compete with men in the workplace, and did a good job.  She demanded equal pay for equal work.  Her production company made many good situation comedies and dramas.  She was nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award for Ordinary People.  She spent much of her life educating people about diabetes and fighting for better treatment of animals.  What a wonderful person.
