There's a line between abusing alcohol and being an alcoholic (at least, I hope there is). Don needing to go straight to a bar to get stumbling drunk definitely crosses that line.
Seems like the least predictable series in memory. Wouldn't be surprised if Spurs swept Heat or Heat swept Spurs or anything in between. Heat in 6 seems marginally most likely outcome.
I said Miami would have no problem with Pacecars, so mea culpa. I based that on Indiana going to Miami during the streak, both teams looking to win, and Miami handling them. That, and Indiana running 5 deep would be their Achilles heel. I think the latter held true; Indiana followed all of their hardfought victories by being blown out. But kudos to people who said the Heat couldn't handle West/George and Hibbert. They were right; I was wrong.Indiana should be able to bring...
Every time Draper goes to LA he has some dreamlike, epiphanic experience, as if there was some other life he should be living. Not this time, Don, too old, your life is your life.

It would be a nice parallel to Draper if Benson assumed his phony identity to dodge the draft (nice contrast w/ Greg, too).
Nice try by Pacecars, but starting 5 all played more than 40 minutes. They will be as dusted as Bulls by Game 3. Could someone help me out? I know white people are supposed to hate LeBron, but I'm a little out of the loop and I didn't get the memo. Could someone remind me why?
Basically no plot. Only character development was Peggy increasingly waking up to the fact that she is the one who should actually be in charge. Pretty great on establishing the atmosphere of fear and loathing/darkness that Hunter Thompson and Norman Mailer tells us was characteristic of the time. Crime, parental neglect, Vietnam, teen sex, bad drug trips, corporate malfunctioning and the general sense that the inmates had taken over the asylum. Genuinely disturbing. Don...
