Norman Lear Talks Archie Bunker, Mary Hartman And More...

Really nice podcast from Tablet.

If you don't read Tablet, you should. Apparently, Archie Bunker was modeled on his dad. He clearly had a complicated relationship with him, and his mother (a "full fledged narcissist"). His quote about his mother, "life was a mirror, all she saw was herself" is quite brilliant.

I am totally going to steal that because I know quite a number of narcissists and that's a devastatingly accurate way to describe them.
