    It can matter a great deal as to how large that piece is.

    We run on a similar system at our firm:

    1. Partners get dividends in relation to the fraction of the revenue they brought it.
    2. Partners also get a share (based on number of shares owned) of general company revenues that aren't included in line 1 (like sales of work by someone not a partner)
    3. Partners also get improved valuation of their shares due to improved business, company assets, etc

    So here, it matters a great deal whether an account is assigned to you or not. I'd expect SCDPCGC to be the same.

    Ah, thanks! I don't know why I didn't remember him at all. He's sooooo very short, for a man, that I would have figured I'd remember him. I just snagged his name (actor's name - Danny Strong) and looked him up. It says he's 5'2" and I actually thought he looked shorter than that. Perhaps they specifically made him look even shorter for the purpose of that character.

    He has done a lot of things of which I was unaware and has awards for them. :)

    They made him look especially short in this episode. Though the scene when he shook hands saying good-bye to Don he looked really short too.

    He played a recurring character on Buffy that I really enjoyed.

    What the heck was the deal with Ginsburg? HE should have been fired on the spot for the things he said to Roger II.

    IMO if you look like Don you can wear whatever you want and be accepted by any age group. :up:

    They interviewed him because he was Jane's cousin, they hired him because Don inadvertantly pitched Danny's 'cure for the common...' fixation and the client liked it. It might have been for Life cereal, which turned out to be a point of contention with the Carnation people.

    A mini skirt is never god awful. Joan's big bow may have some sort of way to convey her continuing loss of power.

    Exactly. It was an interesting read, but I think Mad Men viewers would be HIGHLY disappointed if there were any truth to Megan being dead. I've seen Sixth Sense. I don't need to see it again via Mad Men.

    Any truth to Megan being dead now, or dying in this season?

    There is precedence for Don "sensing" someone he is close to dying before being formally told. And it is pretty obvious that they are trying to foreshadow that Megan is going to die this season.

    I sure hope they don't go that route. Don is clearly conflicted about his marriage to Megan. Sometimes he seems bored with it, sometimes he seems like that's the only place he can find peace. Megan clearly loves him and wants to make it work. So I think it would be far too easy and convenient for Megan to die as a way for Don to get out of this marriage that is problematic for him. Don doesn't deserve to get off convenient and easy.
