What the Writer's Strike Needed Was Some Jazz Hands
Writers Guild of America West president Patric Verrone announced this weekend that the writers and producers have reached a tentative deal. It reminded me of an email exchange I had with my friend Mark a few months ago.
Me: I know this is weird but whenever I see the name Patric Verrone I picture Ben Vereen.
Mark: Haha. That's not weird at all! Though it would be cool if Ben Vereen were negotiating. The strike would be over in days.
Me: I know, right? He could just tap that shit out.
