Mad Men Series FinaleAnyone catch the series finale of Mad Men? Thoughts? I was a bit underwhelmed. The last two episodes, especially the penultimate episode, were strong... this one, not so much.

Grant Hill Post-NBA Role in FinanceI came across this article about Grant Hill's post-NBA career on Bloomberg (link was on Dealbreaker). It's a pretty interesting read (albeit one that feels a bit like a glowing rec letter).

Search - allow for subcategory classificationsI'm not sure if this has been brought up, but I find the search results difficult to navigate through when a topic is popular.
