They were very Mom and Dad in moments like that.

A Republican, and respected by the people who worked w/ a for her. Read a good book about her show. Ed Asner, the big Democrat, was a sexist, asshole, pig. Mary had severe dementia the last several years.

Asner is really a Commie, ready to take offense at almost anything.

When he did "El Dorado" and the Duke referred to him as "that New York actor" he went around asking if Wayne was being anti-Semitic.

When I was a callow youth (what other kind is there?) I was watching TV with my Dad and there was some drop dead gorgeous creature on the screen (could've been MTM, not sure) and in my callow youth stupidity I said, "I wouldn't kick her out of bed." "What makes you think you could ever bed her?" he shot back. Those are the shocks we need growing up.

No, you always want them to set their sights as high as possible.

Loved her show. Best part was Carlton the doorman.

Everything I've read about Asner shows that he was a complete tool. But he was good as Lou Grant. Mary Tyler Moore show was the only sitcom that got better as it went along because they kept giving Ted Knight more lines.

I could never understand why Hawks hired him. He stuck out like a sore thumb and seemed as "Western" as a Pastrami on rye. I think its his only film Western.
