Communications 310 Jacqueline Joseph E-Journal Assignment 2 April 17, 2009 1) The episode of “All in the Family” that we viewed in class referred to homosexuality. In this episode, the Archie’s son Mike invites a friend over for lunch. Archie makes a bunch of jokes and concludes that Mike’s friend is homosexual because of the way he dresses and acts. Archie goes to a bar with his buddies to watch a fight. He sees a friend and talks to him about how he was an ex-ball player and how great he thinks his friend is. Mike hints that this ball-player is homosexual and the Archie doesn’t believe it. At the end of the episode Archie tells his friend how ridiculous Mike’s claim was and the ball- player actually tells him that he is a homosexual. Archie is shocked and can’t believe that he was so wrong in his judgments. 2) The message the show was attempting to get to its viewers was the issue of homosexuality, an issue not often put into discourse at the time the show aired. The lack of discourse around homosexuality is seen in President Nixon’s reaction to the show.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
