    Oh Great, now those geniuses can get back to writing crap like Meet the Spartans and other stuff the world would be a better place without. On the plus side, new episodes of the Simpsons and some good movies will be able to get off the ground.

    Re: Writer's Strike is Over!

    From today's New York Times:

    LOS ANGELES — An end to Hollywood’s long and bitter writers’ strike appeared close on Saturday, as union leaders representing 12,000 movie and television writers said they had reached a tentative three-year deal with production companies.

    The strike, which began Nov. 5, remains in effect until the governing boards of the two writers’ guilds gauge the sense of their membership in mass meetings on both coasts this weekend and decide whether to end the walkout. The mood at the New York meeting on Saturday afternoon was one of supportive optimism, with a touch of wariness, and the Los Angeles gathering was set to take place late in the evening. The boards are expected to meet as early as Sunday, and the strike could be over by Monday morning.

    Better to be one of the two guys getting paid to write it than one of the many dopes out there who intentionally paid actual money to see it and make it the #1 movie in the country with $18+ million a couple of weeks ago.

    Wait a minute you Office fans. I just read an article where Greg Daniels said they're planning to air 6 more new episodes this season if the writers guild votes to end the strike now.

    So the season can still be saved!

    Post STRIKE OVER: Hollywood Back To Work!

    STRIKE OVER: Hollywood Back To Work!
    http://www.drudgereport.com/

    ...Here's the official WGA announcement to striking writers:

    On Tuesday, members of the Writers Guilds East and West voted by a 92.5% margin to lift the restraining order that was invoked on November 5th. The strike is over.

    Writing can resume immediately. If you were employed when the strike began, you should plan to report to work on Wednesday. If you're not employed at an office or other work site, call or e-mail your employer that you are resuming work. If you have been told not to report to work or resume your services, we recommend that you still notify your employer in writing of your availability to do so. Questions concerning return-to-work issues should be directed to the WGAW legal department or the WGAE’s assistant executive director....
