WGA Members Vote to End Strike

Tonight (Tuesday, February 12th 2008) the 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.
Read the official WGA announcement to striking writers on Deadline Hollywood Daily.

To Quote Alan Brady (Carl Reiner on The Dick Van Dyke Show episode Coast-to-Coast Big Mouth), "Oh, happy days are here again!"

And I can go back to signing off with "Stay Tuned"

Roy Scheider 1932-2008

I wanted to write something in honor of Roy Scheider because he starred in the TV shows SeaQuest DSV and Third Watch but by the time I was able to get to my computer there were so many tributes to the man from all over the world. Since so much has already been said about this talented actor, I decided to pour myself a drink, raise my glass and sing,

Show me the way to go home
I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago
And it got right to my head
Where ever I may roam
On land or sea or foam
You will always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home

Good Night Mr. Scheider. You are now home.

In Solidarity
