In his blog, James Wolcott gives a nod to WNEP Theater's production of Patient No. 1, Donald Freed's look into a near future when a vegetative ex-President Bush has been carted off to a mental institution. The Vanity Fair scribe notes he won't be making it to the final weekend of the play as he's suffering from a "pulled hammy," then later mentions his "stuffy cold." It seems the poor man can do nothing but watch TV--but alas, Mad Men continues to disappoint him.
