The Writers' Strike Is Over!

Per CNN:


LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Striking Hollywood writers will be back at their keyboards Wednesday after voting overwhelmingly to end a 100-day walkout that essentially shut down the entertainment industry.

More than 92 percent of the Writers Guild of America members who cast ballots Tuesday in Los Angeles and New York voted to end their work stoppage over residuals for writing in the digital age, including new media and the Internet. The new deal is for three years.


As a proud consumer of TV and film, I look forward to sampling the dramatic and comedic delicacies once again being cooked up in the heads of our talented writers.

All kidding aside, it's good to have you back.

Hopefully during their down-time, they watched some of their own crap and realized they wanted to leave a better legacy.

Oooo...Small Wonder! Heals over at the Mundane did a little story on that robot a few months back (please excuse my linking, i got excited). It's good the writers are coming back before the Dems screw it up. God knows they need the propaganda. Did you know Small Wonder was on for Five years. How'd they do that? Off topic: You,Spotchy, please consider joining us in a freindly game of Clutrmap Risk. Not sure of the rules yet, but you're ahead.

p0nk, oh you behave now.

r. alan, five years, eh? That says something about the world we live in, something I perhaps don't want to admit. I read the post over on your side. I wasn't aware there was an urban legend about Billy Corgan being on the show -- that's hilarious.

It will be nice to see "The Word" and "Threat Down" on The Colbert Report again.

Thanks so much for reminding me that at one point in my life, I actually was forced to watch Small Wonder.
