Welcome Back, Writers! We Missed You!!!

Stories like these are only possible with your help!
You have the power to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your financial support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Thank you for investing in your community.

True, the strike has been over for awhile now and things have pretty much returned to normal. But I don't want you writers to think we are taking you for granted just because we're not honking anymore. We are honking with our hearts.

New television shows are finally trickling down to the TiVo-ed masses, and they are better than ever! Clearly the writers weren't just sitting around eating free breakfasts at Bob's. They were fine-tuning some of the most hilarious comedy to come our way in years. My Name is Earl? A tour de force! Any show that incorporates chicken suits and tiny cars has my Emmy vote.

Speaking of the Emmys, The Office absolutely must submit "The Dinner Party" for consideration this year. That Emmy is in the bag. In the bag. So wrong so right all night alright oh yeah. That one night (one night) you made everything alright. From the looks of Youtube, I'm not the only one obsessed with That One Night. Thank God there are tribute videos, to save us from ironically posting a clip without paying royalties.

The viewing public raises our own wine glasses (that we brought ourselves) to you, Writers Guild of America! Welcome back! Please don't ever leave us alone with those reality shows again.
