Will the Bulls**t End?

Now that all the internal SAG lawsuit filing, in-fighting and public back biting has subsided since Doug "Fail" Allen has been outsted, it looks like the 'united' SAG leadership will meet with the AMPTP today. AMPTP will attempt to convince the actors they are just poor paupers living in a world of enconomic uncertainty despite the biggest President's Day weekend Box office in history happening over the weekend.

Regardless, will these new negotiations bring about the desperate resolution to this issue? I hope so. Keep in mind the WGA conflict and contract ended at the 100 day mark. This SAG contract issue is now over 200 days old, and virtually no progress has been made. I can't remember the last time Hollywood wasn't dealing with a labor issue. It's been that long.
