Question: Can you give us an update on the strike? Are there any negotiations going on? This Aushole in Israel is getting frustrated not being able to download anything new.

Answer: Finally, some good news: It looks like the DGA deal had the desired effect in that it got both sides talking again. How long they'll stay talking is anyone's guess. Ah, what the heck, I'll take a stab at it. I'm guessing that by this time next week, the writers and producers will have hammered out a tentative deal that will end the nearly-three-month strike and pave the way for me to start hatin' on One Tree Hill again. You heard it here first.
