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!


Whats in a Name?

 PORT TOWNSEND — Ulysses Corwin Nevermissashot, who is charged with robbing the Quilcene branch of U.S. Bank in November, is scheduled to be arraigned at 8:30 a.m. today in Jefferson County Superior Court.
The 26-year-old Quilcene man was arrested at his residence Tuesday and charged Wednesday with one count of first-degree bank robbery.
He remained Thursday in the Jefferson County jail on $50,000 bond.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said Nevermissashot robbed a bank teller at gunpoint and fled on foot with an undisclosed sum of money Nov. 15.
No shots were fired, and no one was hurt.
Thank goodness no shots were fired, because you know, he never misses.


  1. Of course you never miss if you never take a shot.

    If I had to pick a name for myself, I'd want something short and easy to spell. It would have a unique one to one association of letters to the sounds they make so there would be no possibility of getting it wrong.

    Is that pronounced Hal-lee or Hay-lee?

    The short and easy to spell name you choose to write at the end of your comment.

    I was speaking hypothetically. Hale was selected for historical significance, not phonetic ease.

    And I was speaking jokingly.

    It was ironically humorous that the name you actually chose didn't jibe with all the hypothetical qualifications, as well as being a classic demonstration of the idiosyncrasies of the English language (the silent 'e').
