June Cleaver is dead. So give it up

 

June Cleaver is dead. So is Ward. And Wally. And, the Beaver, too.

Actually, the Cleavers only existed on television from 1957 through 1963. But, they were the real American family.

In some ways, we still believe the Cleavers of Mayfield actually existed. We programmed church to cater to the Cleavers who were consistent, dedicated, followed Dr. Spock, and predictable.

We seek comfort when we are stressed. We learned as babies that milk was comfort. When we were sick as children, we were comforted by chicken soup or ice cream or whatever Mom’s favorite cookie recipe was.
