Monday morning musings

Hopefully everyone had a safe and happy Halloween and wore their latex physician glove when dispensing candy to the trick-or-treaters. (Seriously--did you see where we were encouraged to wear these gloves even though the candy being dispensed was packaged? This H1N1 deal is getting everyone a bit loopy...)

- Season three of Mad Men has one episode to go and this has been, I think, the best season to date. Jon Hamm's acting in the past two episodes will net him an Emmy win for Best Actor. In last night's episode, the assassination of President John Kennedy was woven into the story line in a neatly told, true-to-the-time way. Excerpts of Walter Cronkite, David Brinkley and others were used to provide the reality of that awful late November weekend in 1963.

- It's officially the Christmas season--I'm seeing the television commercials for visiting Branson for the holidays, featuring Andy Williams. How many years have these commercials aired?

- Kansas State lost but their second half performance in Norman on Saturday night, against Oklahoma, was truly impressive. The 11:30 a.m. game on Saturday between State and Kansas is huge for both teams.

- That "fall back" thing is a nice benefit of the shift from Daylight Savings Time.
