We Have No Liquor

I'm thinking about taking another crack at writing a review of teevee's Mad Men (this time the mid-"season" demi-finale) but I don't know if it's worth it.  So until the Muse comes and settles the question either way, consider this a mid-blog demi-review.

Also enjoy some non-spoiler videos, each of which has some direct bearing on the episode just past:

Brotherhood Of Man

A Secretary Is Not a Toy

Let's Have Another Cup Of Coffee...

Funny..when Burt Cooper was doing his little posthumous number, a picture of his younger self kept popping into my head..also remember "Lets have another cup..." from Paper Moon?

Mad Men, when some asked why I didn't watch it, response: some of us lived through that time as working women. It wasn't fun and the guys were never that good looking.

Chatter would have us believe that Glenn Greenwald is hanging out in Cambridge, giving public speeches and making threats in interviews to heave out one last ultraspectacular document dump.

Given the Glenn's previous level of whining that he could not return to America lest he be whacked by Obama's goons, and with reference to the nagging question of which prison holds Bart Gellman incognito, how is this not unpossible? If the NSA is as evil and all embracing as the Greenwald stooges and sycophants insist, why is he not lying face down in some ditch after an unfortunate accident.

Am I the only one that sees a bit of Jim Carrey's shtick's inspiration in that first clip?
