SPOILER ALERT. DON’T READ THIS IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED ON TONIGHT’S MAD MEN . “What do men say when you ask that?” Don snaps back. Couple things here.

CHESHIRE, Conn. — With colorful cutouts of cartoon characters scattered across the lawn, it would be easy to mistake the Barker Character, Comic and Cartoon Museum for a day-care center. But “this is boomer heaven,’’ says curator Judy Fuerst. “Boomers bring their kids and grandkids, and then they come back alone to spend more time.’’ It’s not unusual, she says, for some visitors to spend the entire afternoon peering into the cases.
