All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


4,300 a Year

I was told that’s the number of babies that die of SIDS each year in the US. It’s not big number. Pretty good odds that it’ll never happen to your kid or anyone you know. It’s a small number, if you happen to think about it, it’s a slightly sad number. Not much of a headline grabber, if you saw it in a newspaper you’d move on to more interesting topics.

At least I would. It’s not pleasant to think about and it’s not big enough to get overly concerned over. A sad little number in a world filled with big tragic numbers.

Six days after my son was born, my sister had her second child, a girl, named Cadee. Last night Cadee got her bath, a clean diaper and ate, she went to sleep like a good girl. She didn’t wake up.

The funeral is Monday in Trenton MI. I will be on a plane first thing in the morning. There are a number of good Christian folks who stop by here, if you would, please say a prayer for my sis, her husband and their little boy.
