when i was out in L.A., the writers went on strike, and it was a big deal. i haven’t been following the story, so they might be on strike still. i guess the last one lasted for 5.5 months. it means people are out of work and “your favorite shows” go off the air because there’s no one there to write them. that includes the daily show, people!
well, i’m going on hiatus, too. because i don’t have regular access to a computer right now and i’m not sure when that will be rectified, i’m going to take a break from chicagoist. i wrote there for two years and i had a really great experience on many levels. but for now, i’m taking an indefinite leave of absence. i’m bummed about it for a lot of reasons, but i guess everything changes.
