Interesting how the very same topic can produce two totally different viewpoints. Case in point, Joss Wheadon’s response to the alleged end of the writer’s strike vs. Michael Eisener’s response.

Eisner says, in the same breath, “”It’s over,” Eisner said. “They made the deal, they shook hands on the deal. It’s going on Saturday to the writers in general.”  and then he says, “A deal has been made, and they’ll be back to work very soon,” Eisner said, adding, “I know a deal’s been made. I know it’s over.”

He knows it’s over? Is he wearing a schwami hat? Either it’s over, or he knows it’s over, it just seems like he’s contradicting himself, only I can’t figure out how. He goes on to say that cutbacks will mean that returning writers won’t get paid as much. What kind of deal is that? And who are “they?” It just sounds so muddled to me, like there’s more he’s not telling us.

Wheadon, on the other hand, sounds more like Churchill, during the Blitz, encouraging Londoners to hang in there till the battle was really over. Because as anyone knows, the real battle begins when the war stops.

More on the strike….yeah, it’s not over till it’s over! Read article here.
