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!
Mrs. Ipsa is a recycler. If things were up to me stuff that I didn't have a use for anymore, would go in the trash and get hauled to the dump. Not so with the wife. Plastic, steel, cardboard and glass get dutifully washed and bagged and stored in the back room. I understand that recycling reduces landfill space and is therefor somehow environmentally beneficial. I just don't see how keeping all this crap in my house is helping anybody.
