A note and banners from Steven Sears: "SO WHAT ABOUT RAIN? At the moment, the weather report says that we might have rain on Thursday. What do we do about that? Well, we dress for it and hope for the best. That's about all we can do. The weather report here changes from day to day and, for all I know, it will be sunny and 80 degrees (not likely!). But dress warmly for wet weather. Hopefully it won't be too bad. We can still have fun. Keep dry…"

hey all and sundry --
30 November 2007
yet ANOTHER generous drop came to the disney gate today
from the xenaverse. have tell you - it's so humbling and
inspiring. the mostly male WGA writers always walk up to
me with shock on their faces when i arrive, saying,
"they did it AGAIN!" and i smile, realizing, then say,
"you don't know the power of the xenaverse."
your gift was especially appreciated today as i'm sure
many of you have read, the AMPTP's "groundbreaking" deal
was anything but. the lowball offer -($250 flat fee
residual after 6 weeks FREE downloading for an 1 hour

unite us even more in our fight to receive a fair deal
from the major corporations.
if you have any questions about the strike - please
my website or
and thank you again for understanding and supporting
writers! (and also actors, because SAG will be next and
we're hoping that with union solidarity and by
bargaining first, we can assure them a fair deal equal
