My favorite discovery in Vanity Fair's cover story on Mad Men was learning that the women dominate the writing of the show -- "the core five of whom are all women, unusual in television," as the story states. A new WSJ story picks up the same theme, expanding the numbers a bit: "Seven of the nine members of the writing team are women." (This is the first time I've noticed that Marti Noxon, my favorite Buffy writer, is also one of the staff members.)
