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)

Attman of Pikesville, said in a eulogy for his mother.

Fort Mitchell, Ky. Friday, March 6Dear Mom,Greetings from Beer Camp! Oh, I can hear you now: "Camp?! Why, you're 46 years old! Is this some new scheme for you and your disgusting friends to get away for the weekend?"Actually, I flew out here without my disgusting friends, although I have met lots of new disgusting friends, some of whom I will tell you about now.Yep, that's right, Mom, I'm at Beer Camp! Isn't that cool?! I can imagine you making the sign of the cross, but this camp sure is different from the one you sent me to when I was 12, the one with the tar-pit lake and fat Joey Patane setting his hair on fire every time we roasted marshmallows.

What are you thankful for? we asked our readers.A simple question. But with so many answers.Little things. Big things. Things we have that others don't. The sound of a child's voice. A fluffy dog named Nunzio. A stranger's kindness. A set of bagpipes. A memory of closeness in a family that has grown apart. A hug, a laugh, the smell of rain. A second chance at life.Thousands of people sent us their notes of thanks, far too many, unfortunately, to publish here. What follows is just a small sampling of their amazing breadth.

It's "Prom Night" on Dancing with the Stars , and Jacoby Jones tells Karina Smirnoff he went to his prom "on a last-minute thing. " He was 5'7" and 160 pounds, and went stag. Once at prom, he played some pranks and got kicked out. Oooh, scandal! Jacoby's high school was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina when he was a college student. He's dedicating tonight's dance to his alma mater, Marion Abramson High School. During rehearsals, the Ravens player keeps saying "rhumba" to rhyme with "Roomba" the self-propelled vacuum cleaner.

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)
