New episodes of “Mad Men” won’t be returning to AMC until early 2012. And in related news, I won’t be returning from a state of utter despair until that time either!

Apparently the show’s creator, Matthew Weiner is in the midst of a contract dispute with AMC, the network that has hosted “Mad Men” for the last four summers.

“While we are getting a later start than in years past due to ongoing, key non-cast negotiations, ‘Mad Men’ will be back for a fifth season in early 2012,” the channel said.

Those “non-cast negotiations” refer to Weiner whose contract expired at the end of the fourth season.

According to Deadline.com and The Daily, Weiner has been objecting to two proposals by AMC that want to shave several minutes off of each episode to add in more commercials (lame), and the idea to eliminate two cast memebers in an effort to save money (Roger? Betty? Joan? Peggy?? No no no!).

We are big fans of the show and their eco-stars, like Jon Hamm who has worked to promote hybrid cars, and super greenie Vincent Kartheiser who uses public transit and made a PSA for high-speed rails as well as encouraged vegetarianism. And the show itself has hosted auctions where dresses and props from the show are donated to benefit charity.

Creative education, in the context of social justice, simply means creating a mental space, a field of consciousness, from which the person feels stimulated to engage or hear what you have to say.
