Actress Bonnie Franklin passed away today of complications of pancreatic cancer at the age of 69. She was diagnosed with the disease last September.
Franklin was best known for starring in the CBS sitcom One Day at a Time from 1975 to 1984 which also featured MacKenzie Phillips, Valerie Bertinelli and Pat Harrington as Schneider. I used to watch it after school many, many years ago. It’s probably been thirty years since I last saw the show. The only thing I remember about it is the theme song “This Is It” (written by Jeff Barry) and Schneider’s tool belt.
Prior to One Day at a Time, Franklin was primarily a Broadway actress. She would return to the stage after she left One Day at a Time and dabbled in directing. One of her last TV appearances came in 2011 when she reunited with Bertinelli on her series Hot in Cleveland.
I had no idea she could tap dance.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
