    Thanks for your response and sharing of your personal situation and how it may affect how you are responding to this arc. I am a little puzzled though. Were you talking to me about hoping that things got better for me (I’m fine) or were you responding to a different poster?

    I realize I have a minority opinion. Jonah was originally introduced as a “flake” and a “bad actor” who kept trying to get work in what was portrayed as a frivolous career choice. He also originally was introduced as being irresponsible in dumping Shannon on his sister and brother in-law with little or no warning. While I think later portrayals of Jonah and his career have changed, most commentators continue looking at him through that early prism and many people believe that the end game will be that Shannon will be adopted by Brad and Toni. In general, however, aunts and uncles don’t just legally adopt a niece who has a father in an unconventional job, unless somehow they got child services involved and made a convincing case that Jonah was an unfit father. Other than working away from home I don’t think we’ve really seen that (but as you say, we have differing opinions and I suspect you have more people who would agree with you.) I think in any case it would be very difficult to initiate such an adoption although I don’t know the full legal complications in local law.

    This is the first time that Shannon would be staying with them for a full month, which tells me that she spends most of the time with her father. Many working parents use child care, either paid or with family members (as I’ve mentioned before, a number of people I worked with had their own parents do full time free child care for my coworker’s children). Nobody is suggesting that others adopt their kids due to this situation.

    While I don’t remember the full details I know that at some point Ike wanted to start a purge of lesbians from the military. Two of his female aides told him that they would be first and second on his list so he changed his mind.

    People seem to choose to forget that Jonah’s “galavanting” is work. If a firefighter were a single parent it would be just as complicated to get child care.

    They’re wondering where they misplaced their stripes.

    Actually, he’s not. He’s staring straight ahead and contemplating the concept of a month with Shannon.

    The fact that this is the first time Shannon would stay with them for that length of time tells me that she is with her father far more than the readership has assumed. As for critiquing his choice of work, both Brad and Toni have very high risk jobs with long hours. Perhaps Brad should consider getting an office job before starting a family?

    Yes, I’m well aware of that old joke – and the fact that probably Breathed would have pretty much associated feminism with bra burning (and women who didn’t use dipilatories).

    My guess is that there are different versions of the story. I’ve always remembered the one I read that they realized how disruptive it would be to a live show because of some other incidents that happened later on SNL.
