“My crystal ball is no better than yours, but I expect the AMPTP to make a deal with the DGA and then announce that the WGA could have had the same deal three months ago if only our leaders had been professionals or were better negotiators. Or if they had enough chairs. They’ll make a big show of offering the same deal to us, and we’ll vote to take it. Quietly, we’ll drop every other issue they object to. And in the back of our minds we’ll wonder if the whole strike could have been avoided.” — Screenwriter Michael Seitzman (North Country, The Sparrow, The Chancellor Manuscript) in a 1.8. Huffington Post-ing.
