You Can’t Spell Roger Sterling Without Rod Serling

When I was a kid, I was thoroughly confused by a radio commercial that proudly proclaimed that “You can’t spell dependable without D-E-A-N.  Evidently, it made an impression on this person too.

It fascinated me because it really made no sense.  I mean, you can’t spell fantastic without “satan” but so what?

Perhaps of more interest is something that’s been nagging my frontal lobe recently. The name of Sterling Cooper founder Roger Sterling is a few letters removed from one Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner’s favorite artists, Rod Serling.
