I trust Weiner himself when he says, “I have every intention of being part of this show forever,” and I trust Alan Sepinwall as a messenger more than Nikki Finke. I hope this is just Nikki scratching a source’s back, helping them get a leg up in this negotiation in the hopes that real exclusives will be forthcoming.

Also: I realized last night that if I stay home on Friday night, cowering in fear from all the Sexy Postal Workers and Zombie Pelosis, I will have to pass out candy to the 2,000 children who live in my building. So, if you tell me something worth doing in New York on Halloween, I will get myself a red wig and dress up as Joan Holloway. Snap to it.
