Jean Stapleton was born on this day in 1923. What is your favorite Edith Bunker moment on All in the Family?

“Roll for Wisdom.”

“Wisdom? What’s the difference between that and Intelligence?”

“Edith Bunker.”

“What?” She flinched as the others glared as though in chorus. “What?” she whispered.

“I said, ‘Edith Bunker’—from All in the family? Not too bright, but wise as all hell. Or to take a counterexample, Richard Nixon. Get it?”

— from Guardians of the Flame by Joel Rosenberg

Our success depends upon individuals collectively contributing their unused processing power to change the world for the better. World Community Grid is making technology available only to public and not-for-profit organizations to use in humanitarian research that might otherwise not be completed due to the high cost of the computer infrastructure required in the absence of a public grid.
