    Mathers was talking about what a perfect mom June was.

    Then they showed clips of recent TV parents ie the guy on the Sofranos beating up on his son, some moms cussing till the air was blue etc

    freaking love (d) the 50s.

    My wife thinks June Cleaver was the epitome of an American housewife. We were watching an episode once where she was in the kitchen cooking while wearing an expensive looking dress. My wife said; "Look how elegant she is!"

    So what the hell was Huckabee doing on the Beaver instead of that hottie June?

    Well - for one thing - Barbara Billingsly (June) died recently.

    I lived through the 50's.

    I remember most of it.

    It was a mixed bag.

    Some of it sucked and none of us would want to go back to it.

    Some of it was great.

    I would NOT want to be a woman in the 50s or a black man, either.

    I was born in 1951. I remember the last years of the 50's very well. I had a blast. The 50's were wonderful and a great time to grow up. The 60's were great fun too.
