    Two things. First, it was Bobby becoming a real character. He's generally just been an annoyance to Sally or Betty but this episode he became a real character. Second, remember what he said about the wall paper? It didn't line up or match (something like that). Symbolized that many parts of society were not in alignment. Bobby's reaction? To pick it apart. So I read it as Bobby's world is coming apart at the seams due to all the unaligned things happening in society in 1968.

    So I started it and fell asleep about 20 minutes in yesterday but caught just the end of Don's speech.

    One thing I just have a hard time understanding (and this is no doubt because I'm a young etc) is how one non-President, non-enemy's death could galvanize that much emotion. I was thinking about it and can't imagine any leading figure of this generation whose assassination could cause people to consider shutting down offices for the day in mourning. And then I also got to thinking; if any President nowadays were assassinated, would there be the same grief-filled reaction as there was to JFK? I'm highly doubtful.

    Anyway, I can add even less than I normally can, other than to say I think Piob's right about how forced Joan's hug was (maybe intentional compared to Peggy's?) and that the critics seem to love this ep.

    Bobby asking if Francis is going to get shot like MLK.

    Me thinks someone gets shot this season.

    Obviously, I wasn't around at the time of JFK, but I think there could easily be a similar reaction if Obama were to go.

    We're in an era of the internet and 24 cable news, so we'd be able to find plenty of jagoffs who will proclaim how happy they are that it happened, but it doesn't change the fact that a ton of people love the man and a ton more people would be incredibly upset that we couldn't manage to keep the leader of our country safe.

    I think they're making Bobby come off as Autistic or something.

    Don's response was great. "He's not that important."

    No doubt, I'm just saying I don't think the depth and breadth of mourning would be close and it certainly wouldn't be the same type of sadness.



    You're analysis is as poor as your mate choice.

    So, I re-watched the episode, the scene at the awards show where they announced JFK's death was really good. The women were much better than the men there, other than Pete. I thought it was funny how Trudy called the assassination "shameful" then he called it "shameful" the next day. The insurance guy was funny as shit. "I hoped to communicate without saying anything," "IT NEVER WORKS!"

    Peggy's interactions with the RE agent are pretty awesome. Also, Peggy's actress is really good at subtlety. Her reaction to her BF's saying he wants to live on the UWS was really good.

    Betty is still fat. Also that her clothes don't work with black hair combined with her shallowness... has there ever been a less-sympathetic character? Also I hate seeing her in any scene.

    Don is totally falling for his neighbor's wife. The "previously on" had her saying "I can't fall in love" he's most concerned with what's going on in DC, can't take his eyes off her... Also, to me, what's most sad about that relationship is how much Megan loves Don and the neighbor and how Dr. Rosen really/I] likes Don. Also, does anyone else think Stan is a supremely sad character? Not only living with his dad, but sewing his jacket, unable to cook clean or sew, getting chewed out by his dad, still a virgin...

    MLK, not JFK. Ginsberg, not Stan. Stan is a not very sad character at all.

    Stan is the chunky, hairy hipster/comic relief.

    MLK = black; JFK = white
