Mad about Mad Men

It’s safe to say that AMC’s hit Mad Men is on a roll. The series won yet another Emmy on Sunday for Best Drama, and everyone from critics to bloggers are gabbing about the show. This week, Rolling Stone put the cast on the cover, and offered an interesting article on Jon Hamm’s character, Don Draper:
