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!


All Time Winner

Women like to recount and retell birthing stories.  Some women take pride in chickening out and getting the epidural.  Some seem to enjoy, or at least enjoy retelling the story of the 40 hour hard labor.  Some of you judge the rest of women kind as less motherly because you didn't labor at home in the bathtub with a duma.  It's all a big estrogen fueled drama contest. 

Whatever your story of emotionally gripping childbirth, its time to shut up now.  You have been beaten.  I declare the all time winner of women's child labor and delivery stories, Gerri Wolfe.  At age 41 she has topped all of you put together, forever.  It's over you've lost.

    Given where they usually make the incision, I am impressed by the fact she could reach the babies. A woman pregnant with twins is ginormous. I will gladly give her the prize for gutsy broad. I suspect though that when a woman reaches #10/11, all the mystery should be pretty much gone. Not the magic though.

    I have never been one to talk about the details, or to listen to the details. It just seems like such a personal event for a woman and her hubby.

    I will admit though that I had a home birth for my first pregnancy. I kind of envy the birthing centers that hospitals have now. The hospital where we used to live did not put a center in until about 3 years after my second was born.

  5. I'm officially sorry I did this post.
