-- It's April Fool's Day and kind of hard to sort out what's really news from what isn't. Eau de Mutt perfume being a bestseller? That's being reported Friday, but I'm just not believing it.

Amad -- "Mad Men" creator Matt Weiner has signed an agreement with AMC and Lionsgate that clears the way for the Emmy-winning show to return next year, as reported on The Times' Showtracker blog.  Of course, that has us wondering if the series that's been so influential in bringing an early '60s flavor to current fashion is in for a style change as it hits the peace, love and flower power of the latter part of the decade, an idea writer Vincent Boucher explored here recently.
