Don’s still on the road in ‘The Milk And Honey Route’; and, in a sense, on the run: as the opening dream sequence makes clear, he’s always worried that his Dick Whitman past will catch up with him one day. His car breaks down in Nowheresville, so he’s obliged to stay in a motel for a few days, where his room is cleaned by a young man on the make and, as we will discover, on the take. Before that there’s a lovely little throwaway: Don wanders out to the motel pool where a good-looking woman is sunbathing, her skin lightly anointed with oil. He appraises her, and we know, we just know, that within a few minutes she’s going to be astride him in his motel room… except her husband and children turn up, and the moment passes; as, perhaps, has the Don Draper we knew. “I was

course when you drive the same distance in a vehicle
that gets better gas mileage than the one you used
to drive, you use less gas.
You use less gas and the government gets less gas
tax monies to fix the roads. What to do. Well,
government’s answer was simple, raise the gas tax.
A little later on government started pushing the

manufacturers got on board and produced electric
