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!


He's Back!

Blogger has decided to unlock my account!

It only took nearly two years. 

Since last July, and it was July, I had some BJW's in the queue, a lot has happened.  I'm back to being a banker.  Business is good.  I'm trying to sell my house so I can move.  The wife and Kids are doing fine, but we are all living in different towns while we attempt to sell one house to buy another one.

Thanks for all the calls and emails that you all have sent.  With any luck, I'll start publishing on a regular basis again ASAP.

    Good to see you back, and to hear that thing's are going well.

  2. That's a loyal reader! First post I've written in 8 months and its only up 4 minutes before I get a response.

    It's good to hear from you WB. I'll get a post up with the details as soon as I get one written. This is the first weekend I've been home since St. Patties Day. So, I probably won't get to much writing in till Monday.

      I check mostly every day to see if you've gotten restored, and yesterday it actually happened. Congratulations, you're now the only live Dread Ilk blog linked from Vox's page.

      Updates can wait, enjoy the time with your family while you can.

  3. Great to hear and hope the house sells. :)
