The Writer’s Guild strike is under way. I’m not looking forward to January, should the strike continue, when there won’t be any new episodes of 30 Rock. But I’m surprised by the people who are truly worried about their soap operas, late-night talk shows, and prime-time addictions going away.
I typically don’t like strikes, but this one seems to make sense. I think if people make money off the work of other people, the originators of the work should get paid too.
Anyway, I have a suggestion for a country where an astounding number of people spend exponentially more time in front of the tube than they do flipping pages: READ A BOOK!
Trust me, you’ll be better for it — unless you read The Secret!
