What was learned from the writers' strike

There's an alternate spelling to the name Patrick.

We stuck together and won something. I think.

We may never find out how "Carpoolers" end.

Walking back in forth for a few hours really doesn't count as exercise.

As a rule SAG members are more attractive than WGA members.

It was best not to discuss the intricacies of the issues for the strike.

There are a whole lot of white guys in the WGA

If you say to someone, oh, you write movies, be prepared to be corrected (yeah, I write features)

It would be easy to think that Obama `08 stickers are standard issue on a Prius.

Most days, speaking with fellow strikers, was like sitting next to a nice person on cross country flight: You may never see him or her again, but it was very pleasant.

There seem to be fewer jobs out there.

It's a challenge to turn your pilot that isn't going anywhere into a "webisode."

It's hard to pull off the hipster look once you hit 40.

I just faxed my proxy giving Patric Verrone the right to vote for me to end the strike. I also granted him temporary conservatorship, which I believe makes him responsible for my alimony payments, and I asked him to find out if this cute woman I met at gate four at Warner Bros. in late January likes me.

AMPTP said the WGA in general and Patric Verrone specifically were behind the death of Bhutto. The WGA says it has documents proving the AMPTP helped former Illinois policeman Drew Peterson kill his wife and Nick Counter purchased a large blue container for her body and helped Peterson dispose of her. In addition, the guild says it has photographic evidence of Counter unlocking a door on the tiger exhibit at the San Francisco Zoo. None of this bodes well for a quick resolution.
