We’ve been hating this writers’ strike, but loving the blogs devoted to it. Top on our list is Writers Strike, a sparse, funny read that has yet to turn black and ugly (though we’re sure if this goes on any longer, that might change). So we invited the editor of Writers Strike to answer our 20 Questions. Which he did. Without answering our first question — who the hell are you?
