Writers' Strike Officially Ends

Hollywood’s writers made it official on Tuesday night, ending their bitterly fought strike at the 100-day mark by an overwhelming margin. Of 3,775 writers who cast ballots, 92.5 percent voted in favor of ending the strike.

The strike officially ended.

I'm surprised that after writing hundreds of articles about the writers' strike, journalists never realized they are actually... writers. Sure, maybe a different kind of writer, but a writer nonetheless.

If anyone should strike for wages, it's the classic journalist. Snobby L.A. screenwriters, at least the ones striking, are making upwards of $200,000 a year. These journalists are reeling in the big bucks... earning around $30,000 a year.

I'm just glad Scrubs is back.
