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.
