Season 6 of AMC’s “Mad Men” ended recently with the main character, Don Draper, finally (Hopefully) hitting rock bottom.
For the first five seasons, the Madison Avenue ad man of the 1960s was the man every other man wanted to be and the man every woman wanted to be with.
Smooth, handsome, supremely talented at his job, he could charm his way into or out of anything.
At the same time, Don Draper lived a lie. Born Dick Whitman, he grew up dirt poor in a Pennsylvania whorehouse, the son of a prostitute.
