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!


Gerald Ford RIP

Much in the news today about America’s unelected president. Take it easy now Bill, this isn’t a tirade about GWB.

Ford accepted a tough job at a tough time, then he got promoted into a even tougher one. I’m not big on the draft dodger pardon, I think they should have stayed in Canada. They made their choice, a fact I can respect, but they should have lived with those consequences and not been given a second chance to enjoy the benefits of living in a nation that they found repugnant enough to leave.

Other than that I can’t say Ford should be judged too harshly. He wasn’t a great leader, nor did he suck too badly, he merely kept the ship of state listing along and steered it through the Nixon fall out. Of course had he done a better job we might not have ended up with Carter….
