Picket Lung

I know it’s important during week four to keep up the fight, the resolve, the rah-rah-rah, but here on week four, day four, I have woken up with a serious case of Picket Lung.

I just wanted to thank those of you who have written to express your support of me and my fellow writers currently on strike.

But thanks for all that you do. Thanks for watching Samantha Who?, and thanks for reminding me that you’re out there. I’ll write as soon as I can.

Oh, and if you’re in the LA or NYC area and you’re wondering what you can do to help? Come walk the line with us. Come for a few minutes, or a few hours — it makes a difference. And we’d be happy to see you. (NYC picket info here.)
