Writer-free zones

Perhaps I’m not union-friendly enough, perhaps I just see a strike as a negotiation, but I really don’t get that how-dare-people-who-don’t-do-our-jobs-do-their-jobs attitude that has people taking offense at talk show hosts going on with their gigs. If writers are needed to make a show good, there’s likely to be no quicker way to prove that then have the show go along without writers.

And if they can cut a deal with the Letterman folks, I think they should. I mean, what would show the differential better than to have a writerless Leno show getting trounced by a with-writers (and, admittedly, a with-guests-who-wouldn’t-cross-picket-lines) Letterman show?
