One More For Bea!

Sarah's excellent roundup of Bea Arthur moments got me thinking of one of my favorite Maude moments, which of course, featured the great Bea. In this clip, Maude took on three of the great sitcom TV taboos — women over forty, women over forty having sex, and abortion. Ironically, it wasn't really until Sex and The City that a comedy delved into all that again.
