It's time to meet the really, really bad parents. Look, no mom and dad are perfect. They make mistakes. They miss ball games. But Megan Draper's folks (played by guest stars Ronald Guttman and Julia Ormond. Julia freaking Ormond) fight loudly in French, cheat at an American Cancer Society Ball and basically make their daughter feel like crap. Also making her daughter feel like crap, in a particularly non-French but more brutal way, is Peggy's mom. Sigh. I want to give my parents a call and just have them say something nice to me. Lets start with Megan folks, who are visiting from Montreal (yet have really, really, really French accents)

Thank you for Jean Marbella 's article on the Freemasons ("Masons open their doors at least a crack," April 2). My dad, Justinus Gould, who would be 110 this summer if still among us, was a devout Mason and a member of Cassia Lodge. He was a deeply religious Reform Jew, being a life-long member of Har Sinai Congregation. My dad disliked any references to superstition and those types of matters. One of his greatest joys in life after mom and me and my family and equal to his work as a Capitol Hill attorney (he commuted)

Mom is such an angel. She wiped your nose when you sneezed, fed you chicken soup when you were sick and held your hand when you crossed the street. (And that was just last week). Dedication like that calls for love. And perhaps a small token of your appreciation. Here are some last-minute ideas for Mother's Day that she will love. Take a bow, Mom A mom who never likes to buy new clothes for herself needs a little something to freshen up her spring / summer wardrobe. Minnie Mouse had the right idea.

Le'Ron McClain registered his first career touchdown when he made a 13-yard catch against the San Diego Chargers on Nov. 25. But if the rookie fullback weren't playing football, his career path might have taken a different turn. You were a human environmental sciences major at Alabama. What is that? It's like consumer sciences, stuff like pharmaceutical sales and computer stuff. I liked working with computers and all that. I'd love to work at the Apple store. Who is your biggest inspiration?

Mom has a problem with a house guest. His name is Arnie, and she can't get rid of him.Arnie just won't go.Their 12-year relationship hit the skids this year, when Mom decided the house wasn't big enough for both of them. Arnie never worked a day in his life. All he did was sit in front of the TV in the living room, getting bigger and bigger until it became difficult just to walk around him. Arnie's pot was getting pretty big.Mom finally called it quits last spring. She booted Arnie out of the house, dragged him out the back door and stood him in a corner on the patio.

Baltimore's Mittens is officially a celebrity. The abused cat, recently named ASPCA's Cat of the Year , just returned to Baltimore after a whirlwind trip to Manhattan where she not only stayed at a fancy hotel and enjoyed limo service, but was presented with a major award and made an appearance on the Today Show. While we can only imagine how all the hoopla seemed to an unassuming cat, she's filling us in on how it all went down. Here is Mittens' diary from last week's big trip, as told to Unleashed with the help of Cindy Wright, her foster mom who knew a great cat when she saw one and adopted her: Wednesday morning So, I'm headed to New York City to receive the ASPCA's Cat of the Year Award!

ARE YOU getting me a Mother's Day present?" my daughter asked from the other end of the phone line."I hadn't planned on it," I quickly responded. "I may call you and wish you a happy Mother's Day and give you my kindest regards."

The idea for the business came to Greg Vetter shortly after a friend swiped a two-liter bottle of his mom's homemade lemon-garlic salad dressing from his refrigerator. Inspired by the lengths someone would go to for a dressing by "Tessemae," his mom's nickname, Vetter challenged her: If he got Whole Foods to sell the dressing, she would go into business with him. "She said, 'That's never going to happen,'" he recalled. Five years later Vetter, 31, is CEO of an Essex-based company - Tessemae's - that makes the top-selling dressing in the produce department at Whole Foods.
