Time for the Writers of our Shows to Get Their Money

So today marks Day One of the strike by the Writer's Guild of America. Although most studio executives are out there bragging they can hold out indefinately until the writers agree to be fleeced, I have to believe in the good fight. Everyone who appreciates the extraordinary stories brought to us through our favorite shows, and the truth brought to us by media outside of Faux News, should unite in support. The success of this strike will mean a world of difference to artists both inside the Guild and those aspiring to join them.

Hey there, just read your most recent post! Awesome stuff. Thanks for your continued support for our cause. I posted an article on my blog: www.beastandbean.wordpress.com detailing my first day out on the picket lines. Please feel free to share it with your buds at the "Battlestar Gallactica" group or anyone else you think might dig it! The more people we can get behind us, the better!

It's nice to know that not everyone is falling for the AMPTP's "all writers are selfish and greedy" party line! So, thanks again for your support and que viva la union!

Right on. It's easy to think of entertainment writers as some pampered lot, but they're labor, too. If anything, a writer's strike shines a spotlight on how this is supposed to work, at a time when rabid union busting is all the rage.

In other news...you're a Gallactica fan? 2008 is a LONG way aways, no? I thought "Bionic Woman" would appease me, but it's, how you say, horrible...

Awesome. We fans are sending Panera to the BSG strikers at universal sometime next week. I will drop you a line so that you can meet our peeps and the great bearded one himself and get fed.

Bionic woman was... yeah. But Katee is always awesome. Poor Eick!!

Thanks for the shout out to my blog. I am definitely going to be spending some time on the line, even though I'm not a Guild member yet!
