Strike Spin: Latest "Watch and See"

Sometimes, you have to get beyond the headlines. When one screams "Screen Actor's Guild to Strike on Jan. 2" it's a lot different than the reality: SAG is on sending out strike authorization ballots. That's not a strike. It's not even a call to strike. Its a ballot to give SAG leadership the right to strike.

Will members, in these times, agree? No idea. But toward the end of the month - after the January 23rd ballot count begins, we should know. From there it may happen, or it may not.

Let's hope they can resolve things soon and not go through this again!
