It's Not Polite to Stare

But really, given the dashing looks of Don and Roger and the downright demented behavior of Betty in the Season 4 premier of Mad Men last night, what else can a well mannered modern mother do?  Apparently, quite a bit.  She could catch up on seasons 1-3 in no time via this link.  See what Don's head shot would look like in the Wall Street Journal circa 1964 or better yet Mad Men Herself and create her own Mad Men character (avatar) for home and social networking.  She could buy the kiddies the soon to be limited edition Mad Men Barbies or simply sit back and revel in Peggy's new hairdo.  Whatever you do, have fun, stay calm, and remember that a) Betty Draper is no maternal role model and b) the well mannered modern mother would never start a fight over a ham in the grocery store.

Thanks for posting that catch up link. Love it!!! I think I forgot most of the show, but not anymore.

Love this! Especially the reminder that Betty Draper is not a role model!

An excellent piece on (what else) Mad Men by Katie Roiphe in the NYTs examining "The Allure of Messy Lives"
