Writer’s block finally ending

3 02 2008

NewsIt seems that the national writer’s block may finally be lifting. The Writer’s Guild of America and their employers have both finally realized how difficult it is to make money when neither are working. Negotiations are considerable progress according to a variety of sources and the writers we so rely on should finally get back to work by the end of this week.

Strike

In another area of society, almost all pundits have declared President George W. Bush a lame duck. His State of the Union address sounded so familiar, citizens may have thought it was simply a rerun, just like every nearly other show on TV. Network TV, Washington D.C.: both seemed to be stuck on repeat as the country experienced an unusual shortage of new ideas. After centuries of being at the forefront of change and progress, people were getting nervous. A supposed economic recession hinted that the U.S. might be stalling.

Ending the writer’s strike is the first step toward a new hopeful future. The second step is the impending change of president. While I am neither supporting nor opposing George W. Bush’s many controversial decisions as President, the possibility that someone else may get their shot at fixing the state of the union certainly is tempting for anyone. While the writers may be happy that they get a couple hundred more dollars per year than before, the rest of us are just happy more Americans are thinking again.
