Victor Navasky's 'Mad Men' Cameo

It's not every day that a Nation staffer gets a shout-out on Mad Men, but that's exactly what happened in this week's episode when Pete Campbell fumed over a real-life New York Times Magazine article written by Publisher Emeritus Victor Vavasky in 1966. Head over to the Atlantic Wire for the backstory to the article's unlikely appearance on the AMC show and go to the New York Times for the original, "Advertising Is a Science? An Art? A Business? The answer, pussycat, may extend into the loftiest regions of Philosophy."
