John Hays 4:27 PM I work in the movie/TV/streaming industry, in the crew union (‘crewnion’?) known as IATSE. While some of my fellow crew cohort are resentful to writers and other creative personnel, I fully support the writers. Without them, many of our gigs wouldn’t exist. Ryan Grant to Everyone 4:28 PM I'm seeing the beginnings of that in public education, too--teachers being replaced by online platforms that aren't nearly as effective as the student/teacher relationship can be. Calexico Cradduck to Everyone 4:30 PM Streaming services and sports entertainment were created to get the eyes of citizens away from the wrongdoings of the world, and get them focused on trivial happenings by paying athletes or actors tons of money a year to keep them entertained Danett Abbott-Wicker to Everyone 4:30 PM Would you like to make a difference in how our government works and develop a working relationship with your members of Congress?

John Hays to Everyone 4:40 PM Yes, since the ‘90s, many productions have moved to Canada, Australia, the UK, New Mexico, Georgia, Louisiana, etc. for various tax breaks and kickbacks — which causes lots of problems for crew personnel, some of whom have to move to other states (some with their families, who are uprooted as a result). The producers, directors, many writers and the management are still in LA (and less so in NYC), but the local crews and vendors suffer as a result of all of this 'runaway production'. I was working at Radford (which Skrovan just mentioned) a few weeks ago. Then the strike happened.

ChatGPT Sure, here are five jokes about Donald Trump: Why did Donald Trump bring a ladder to the bar? Because he heard the drinks were on the house! Why did Donald Trump open a bakery? Because he kneaded some dough! Why did Donald Trump take up gardening? Because he heard it was a great way to 'plant' ideas! Why did Donald Trump become a musician? Because he heard he could 'trump-et' his own praises! Why did Donald Trump go to art school? Because he wanted to learn how to draw 'bigly' crowds!
