STILL BLOGGING....Just a quick note: since this blog is new media, and I don't get residuals from anybody anyway, I'm not on strike today. Blogging will continue normally. You may all breathe a sigh of relief now.

As some of our posts represent having a little fun with the stuff from the National Review, I wonder if Rich Lowry and Jonah Goldberg will call a strike until we pay them royalties. Oh boy - let it be true as we'll let their strike go on for years.

Show some solidarity--STRIKE!! Or just tell us you're striking but you're really getting laid or something else worthwhile. Take pictures while you're at it. I don't think photographers are on strike.

You mean to tell me they have writers in Hollywood? How come they don't let them work on movies and TV shows?

You should support striking writers by not blogging for a day :o)

If Kevin ever DOES have to go on strike, I'll bet he still wouldn't get to sleep in. The cats wouldn't let him.

I am quite certain some on the right wish you were on strike ;)

I notice that the striking writers are holding clever signs that say..."On Strike". Is that the best they can do?

They're not allowed to write, so I guess not!
