We were saddened to learn that Jean Stapleton passed away. She had a varied career, but most of us will always remember her as the long-suffering Edith, the wife of the ever opinionated, Archie Bunker. Even though the show enraged some of the viewers because of Archie’s views, is also was an uncomfortable mirror of how many Americans felt about issues like racism, homosexuality, etc, and brought them out into the public arena for further discussion. The show still is relevant today.
