So on a list I'm on with lots of great people, some of whom are boneheaded,
someone called for the return of "traditional" families -- you know, where
the husband works and the wife stays home with the kids, stuff like that.

I said it was shortsighted and ignored millennia of other traditions to call
the nuclear family "traditional" and another woman said that Adam and Eve
sure looked plenty traditional to her, minus a closet full of clothes. My
response:

Wow. Really? Let's see...

1) They raised a murderer
2) Their kids all practiced incest
3) Neither of them worked, either in or outside of the home

(Not to mention, and this is one you can skip if you want, THEY'RE
FICTIONAL!)
