STRIKE OUT AT 7TH AND MONTANA ...!

                             

It was Back to the Grind today for Screenwriter Mark who made the scene this morning at 7th and Montana with his brother Rob to do what they do best:  crank out award-winning scripts from a table at Our Favorite Starbucks.  The Writers Guild of America voted today to end what has been a devastating three-month strike that virtually brought production in Hollywood to a standstill.  Most writers will return to work tomorrow, but Mark and Rob are Show Runners -- responsible for the day-to-day operation of their shows -- which means they could return to work today.  Inside sources say that everyone walked away from the contract discussions "equally frustrated" which, as they say, is the sign of a good negotiation ...!

LOL, sounds like it.  I remember back in the day when I'd say "I've got a deal you can't refuse."  And stuck to my guns.  They'd walk away from the table mumbling something about me being the hatchett lady....lol.  Glad to hear the strike is over and I hope somehow thru this experience they were able to walk away with more than they started.  They deserve it.

I love the shots you get!  This one is particularly amusing!  I'm glad they are getting back to work.  What a long three months.
