Bomb Squad Salute

Latest shout out to the Brigita Bomb Squad (as I've heard you've named yourself--nicely done) for the book that arrived in yesterday's mail. I look forward to tucking into that, just as soon as I finish Colbert's book. I am thisclose to writing the Writer's Guild to ask them to stop striking so The Report can go back on the air.

Dear WGA,

I am girl living in Wisconsin and was recently diagnosed with cancer. The only thing that makes me laugh any more is The Colbert Report, and while reruns are still pretty darned funny, nothing beats some piping hot Colbert on the TiVo. Please find a way to negotiate a new contract very soon. If you don't you must hate America and love cancer.

Sincerely,
Sugarmouth O'Riordan
Thanks for the book guys. :)

Hey Brigita,

I tried to reach you at the blah.org email address. Holly would love to talk with you. Drop us a line and let me know how to send email.

I thought I heard that Colbert and Stewart are going back on air sans striking writers. So, no more reruns, but not sure this is a good thing.

I think you should send your letter to the heads of the network-owning-corporations; hit 'em on all fronts. (Although not sure they would care as much as the writers or write that Lifetime movie script about your story.)

Give them Hell, Brigita! Down with cancer, up with Colbert, apple pie, and America!

You know, I heard that as well, Tricia, and am kinda pissed that they are being forced to do something that pretty much runs counter to the whole aesthetic/message of both shows. I can't imagine either Stewart or Colbert are going to be on the top of their game since they're only going on as a result of BS corporate arm-twisting. Boo. :(

Hopefully they'll use the air time to blast the Man while keeping up the funny.
