Shows without writers

I may be a bit sensitive to this writers’ strike because, as a writer, I know how hard it is to get fair compensation for what I do.  And if there is any doubt in anyone’s mind about why writers are so important, tune in to the Daily Show or the Colbert Report. Still pretty good but clearly missing the snap and razor sharp wit that professional writers bring to the table. 

The good news is that during the strike, I had more time to read than I’ve had since we went beyond three channels on the dial.
