I don’t cross picket lines because they don’t start picketing until, like, way in the afternoon, and I’m home by then.

Justine Bateman explains why residuals are so important.
She’s a little sketchy on some things, though:

The corporations will want everybody in the country to have the highest speed Internet so they can deliver everything over broadband.

Heidi Ross wants the strike to end now.

Fans of Lost have no clue about anything.:

I do find it terribly aggrivating that writers have become more obssessed with money (hence the strike), than the art of their work.

Strike Driving $100 Million in Ads From TV Biz to Big Screen. Oh great.
