    Life vs Art.

    If you know the story, even Don Draper doesn’t have Don Draper. (I loved the line in one episode where Don asks a photographer how he should pose for a picture and the photographer says “Just be yourself”. Superb writing.)

    Dana’s humoring Rita until she forgets all about it.

    Dana was just making a fast observational comment. And not having a Don Draper may be a good thing.

    I don’t have the right programming to watch that show. I don’t think I am missing anything life-changing.

    I really don’t want to go back in time to when people were told they could only do things that were either ‘manly’ or ‘womanly.’

    people still think that way, they just have to put on an act

    I’d go back- but as a kid again. Kids then weren’t as exposed to all the darkness and badness of the world. It was easy to believe that the world was a great place and people were inherently decent. At least, until the news became filled with Vietnam.

    My dad was actually an ad man in the 60s. I had no idea this stuff was going on. :)

    Two of those men are not the picture of health, but my public middle school would have tried to shanghai them onto the football team simply for the coach to collect the uniform kickbacks.

    @johnzakour

    My Dad was also an ad man, but he didn’t belong in that world. He was once told that if he wanted to get ahead, he had to get a better wife, because the other wives didn’t like my Mom. He told the boss: “Then I guess I won’t get ahead.” Dad was principled and honest, and believed that the quality of one’s work was the most important thing; not money. Wrong kind of guy for that biz.

    In the 60’s, Rita probably wouldn’t be a Veep. That wouldn’t be so bad.

    @TSR… I’ll give you that. I’d go back to being a kid in the 60’s. I don’t remember any of the bad stuff that went on because I was too young. Being a kid was great back then.

    But as an adult male reviled for being in the military, or a woman who was told she had no business in a particular field in the workforce? No thanks.

    Each era has good and bad. Right now there seems to be a lot of ‘bad’, and I do think that the ‘information age’ has scarred us, even as it gives us access to other parts of the globe at a moment’s notice. There was always strife before, though we didn’t know to what extent. Media has allowed us to view the world and all it’s warts. I believe that this has actually hardened us as individuals, and I don’t think that’s a good thing, in the long run.

    Many people now look at the world with a jaundiced eye. And that’s too bad. There’s a lot of good stuff out there. We just have to remember to look for it. And not make fun of the ones who do look for it.
