The "real" crisis with striking Writers...

I haven't been posting much, due to a move and its inherent complications BUT -

the real crisis with this strike is the fact that the writer's issues are but a microcosm of what is *really* happening in the world today. The writer's are you and me for one reason only:


They are more than likely in the vast majority (meaning: how many of us are in the same boat?), and that's the real wake-up call.

Forget not being able to watch a favorite TV show. How shallow is that? TV? What about not being able to "get by" after only a mere two weeks of being on strike. Writer's are the middle-class of Hollywood. They make middle-class money. They're broke after two weeks off the job.

Holy crap we're in for a shit storm. And TV has absolutely nothing to do with it.
