Was Bert's vision his approval of the new deal from beyond, or a warning to Don (who is back on top, but alone yet again) about what's really important in life?
    That was also the desk where Don's secretary, Mrs. Blankenship died. Wasn't she also Bert's secretary for a while? I don't know if that was meant to signify anything, but I picked up on it, and I'm usually oblivious to little things like that.

    Yes she was Bert's secretary -- and from some of the hints dropped, possibly an ex-lover as well.

    And it was a truly eerie/brilliant bit of irony that Burt died the night of the Moon landing, when a few years earlier, he had eulogized Miss Blankenship with "Born in 1898 in a barn, she died on the 37th floor of a skyscraper. She was an astronaut."

    Oh yeah, I totally forgot that astronaut line. Good catch!
