You may have noticed I am a writer. The very words you are reading are probably sufficient testimony to that. So as it happens I think the writers in Hollywood are 100% in the right for their strike; they are not getting paid for internet downloads, when it is generating an obscene amount of money for the studios.

The Daily Show is now in reruns until after the strike, but the writers decided to make their case. As is usual for them, the case is made perfectly, succinctly, and you might even laugh once or twice.
