Typical Madness

Disappointed this a.m. when I read in the NY Times that Mad Men has gone the way of The Sopranos and hit the brakes over money. Tsk-tsk. Isn't always like that? I'm sure some agreement will be reached, I mean, Weiner is certainly worth it. *Sigh* So many crabs fighting in a barrel in these tough times, and like a typical business scenario...the first thing to get cut is "creative" and marketing budgets. Oh well.
