Let Them Eat Cupcakes

Rumors are swirling that the WGA and the AMPTP have reached a deal and thus will the strike end. I read a complaint by a writer that the deal is not substantially better than that between the DGA and the AMPTP, which took one twentieth of the time to reach.

Let’s not bicker and argue over who screwed who. The important thing is that the funny will return to the boob tube. My TiVo was getting out of shape.

Since the deal comes with time running out for the Oscars, salvaging anything from this year’s television season, and preserving next year’s movie season, a cynic might think that the producers stockpiled enough cash and scripts to last them until now, counting on three months without pay and the prospect of no pay until the fall to pressure the writers into compromise. Good thing I’m not a cynic.

Oh, wait. I am.
