Just a reminder that those of you who are starved for entertainment during the strikes of the stagehands and writer's guild can always crack open a book.

The hooker's union isn't striking, right?

Because hooker scabs just don't sound appealing.

No, but they do watch T.V., apparently.
YOU MUST BE WATCHING T.V. AT ALL TIMES!!
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad Ali

What if authors went on strike? A funny little phone conversation I had with my (very sweet but sometimes a little slow on the uptake) ex the other night...

CALVIN'S EX: So, are you on strike now?
CALVIN: What?
CALVIN'S EX: Are you on strike?
CALVIN: What are you talking about?
CALVIN'S EX: I thought the writers were on strike.
CALVIN: Yes. The screenwriters, honey. Not all writers.
CALVIN'S EX: But aren't you all in the same union?

Um, this is about the serious art of reading, as well as those selfish writers and stage hands who have the nerve to interrupt the entertainment needs of BWW.

And hookers read, too! Is I Wanna Be a Ho by Velvet Jones still in print?

My most favorite book in the whole world. I can't even count how many times I've read it.

But would reading books support the Scummy PRODUCERS who won't pay a living wage and so, are causing this horrific strike or the Greedy STAGEHANDS who want to be paid for not working and so, are causing this horrific strike??? 'cause I don't want to send the message I am supporting them!
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.
