Writers' Strike downtown Burbank
I'm old enough to remember Johnny Carson suavely making fun of his studio location "nestled in beautiful downtown Burbank." When he said that the audience would laugh. In St. Paul, Minnesota I would puzzle about how terrible or awful downtown Burbank must be. It's not. It's just a city like other cities. But as we were driving home from our regular IKEA pilgrimage today, laden with candles, napkins, fabrics and stuff, we drove right by the NBC studios where, on the sidewalk were the writers striking. It's so TV-real!
