    We haven't yet covered the MLK episode, but I did publish an article about last week's episode, 'To Have and to Hold.' I wondered about whether Harry was in the wrong for the way he called out Joan in the partners' meeting.

    Any viewer feedback would be great....I'm really curious to hear what others thought about that scene.

    This show has Jumped The Shark. Most white folks reacted to the assassination of Dr, King just like Harry Crane did in this episode-- in a very self-centered way. If I were the usher in the movie theater, I would have told Don to put a muzzle on his little brat.
