The WGA Strike Must Stop... order to keep screenwriters from posing as journalists. John Ridley's Vegas Offers Best Debate was a truly appalling 4 minutes that I could have done without. His references to Law Vegas as a circus and his constant references to his adopted "playa" persona made me think that he was aspiring to a Hunter Thompson-esque gonzo journalism that fell completely flat.

Maybe it was meant more tongue-in-cheek than that, since he ended up watching the debates from a hotel room. Who knows, maybe it was all very funny and it just went over my head at 7:30 A.M. At any rate, I call it drivel. Please please please let these people go back to writing TV shows that I can more easily ignore.
