Due to my hunger for entertainment, I keep an eye on the news on the Writers’ Guild strike, about which I have written before. Now rumors are floating everywhere that the strike is just about over – with this Saturday’s probably being the last. But the Herald Tribune’s article doesn’t put it down as a certainty. It uses words like “on the brink of” which to me indicates that the other newspapers are jumping the gun. Probably trying to sell newspapers.
I hope the writers negotiate a good agreement. Yup, I’m on their side. There’s a lot of money flowing around in the industry. The writers, as the creators of the ideas, should get a decent cut.
