The Company Way

I look forward to the 3rd season of Mad Men to see how 1963's Bert Cooper - President of Stirling Cooper - has made out with his merger.

Bert is played by actor Robert Morse who in 1963 was on Broadway in the middle of his 4 year run as a coffee achiever in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying". He won the Tony, learned how to do things "the company way" -- and reprised his role in the 1967 film.

In these harsh economic times - the lyrics are pretty spot on.
Q. "Is there anything you're against?"
A. "unemployment"
