Aww. He's so cute with his coordinated shoes and shirt! *squishes him*
I love those shoes! So very blue!
That's what I love to see first thing in the morning (or, while I sit here waiting for class to start... Fridays), a pic of Rob picketting. Where did you manage to find that?
Thank you, P-C, for the links! I know what I'll be reading this afternoon (while attempting to look busy here in my office).
Those sneakers are very..smurf like? Hee! Great picture though! Where is he? I don't suppose he was at the same gate with Klembom again? *looks around hopefully for more pictures*
I don't know where he is or which day this picture was taken. I e-mailed him to let him know fans supported the strike and he replied with this (with my post title as his subject line).
The shoes are my favorite.

Go Rob! That's awesome that he sent this to you.

He looks adorable there.
Thanks for sharing.
Pajiba linked a letter Shawn Ryan had sent supporting the strike and explaining why he was ceasing his showrunning duties in support... a good read. Let me see if I can find it again... Ah, here
. (That took longer than I thought.) Anyway I find it interesting that quite a few of the reader comments are along the lines of, "You make millions of dollars so going on strike doesn't affect you as much as other people," or, "You make millions of dollars so why are you complaining?" People make me sad sometimes. I say WGA FTW! Edited at 2007-11-10 12:50 am (UTC)
Yep, I read that e-mail. I don't even watch The Shield and I want the strike over for his sake so he can work on the series finale.

Great. Can I also show them my support by sending them my wedding bills that we now can't afford to pay because my fiance can't work because of this strike? I wish people who can make up to $200K a year for writing someone else's ideas would stop and consider the people below them and how their greedy request for more money is affecting them.

Btw, I should say that I support the right to strike here in America. I'm just saying I'm hesitant to agree with what they are striking for in this case. A regular writer for a TV show makes more than a teacher, a police officer, and a fire fighter COMBINED and arguably does less work. There's something wrong with this, IMO. Especially since, in a few weeks, no one will be able to work because of this strike. Which sucks for pretty much everyone I know who barely makes above minimum wage and are trying to support families on that. But I guess this is the road we chose and we shouldn't complain when things go bad. It just sucks.
Sticking it to the man! That's what I like to see.
