this could force the homes,, parents and children have more interaction with each other,, or maybe better yet the parents and children will even read and thus learn to spell.. and even with a miracle learn that your is a possessive prooun and not a noun and verb.. such as you're otherwise known as you are

Maybe they will also learn not to use two commas when writing. What do you think? And, maybe they can start a sentence with a capital letter. Then, they can write complete sentences instead of rambling on.

the pay the actors way too much money. the writers deserve more money, they do all the hard work. plus the actors waste their money on the silliest things.
tv these days are crap anyways, we will get over it though.

As an actor and a writer i can tell you that acting is just as hard as writing. Also, the production companies know that it is the actor that people come to see, not the writer. With a few exceptions, paul haggis comes to mind. The strike isn't just about getting writers more money, its about getting writers the royalties they deserve on digital media, itunes etc., which currently is not written into their contracts.
