I was kidding, of course, about siccing armed strike-breakers on the WGA picket lines. In fact, I'm basically sympathetic to the writers' demand for a piece of the new media pie -- especially after reading about the studio moguls who thought they owned Barack Obama. But seeing all those actors standing on the picket lines in solidarity with the writers does make me wonder: If they really want to help the writers out, why aren't any of them going beyond cheerfully eating the loss from the strike and actually offering to take a permanent pay cut to sweeten the deal for the studios?
Did I just hear peals of laughter in the distance?
