Thank you, Ken. How well I remember that evil Friday the 22nd of November.
How well do you think this season compares to the previous two and where do you suppose we'll end up?
I was a little surprised that Pete cited Ellery Queen rather than Perry Mason, then TV's reigning crime-solver played by Raymond Burr.
Like you, was glad to see Huntley et al and especially Bill Ryan. I remembered Frank but forgot his last name: McGee.
A couple of other interesting "Mad Men" markers earlier this season:
-- A Rothko in the executive suite
-- Pete to Duck: "Two weeks at gray, and you're already having a nosh?"
-- The guy whose job shared is by Pete and Ken "did not go gentle into that good night."

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
