Joss Whedon, Jaime Paglia (of Eureka), and a bunch of the Daily Show writers will be speaking and marching in Harvard Square between 12pm and 3pm today, along with whatever fans and local writers can turn up, as a show of support for the WGA. At some point in there they're gonna head over to Pandemonium in Central Square to hang out and sign things. Not since elementary school (Jack Prelutsky it was) have I stood in line for any such thing. And I've certainly never marched and chanted slogans. But I'd do this.
[Actually that last bit isn't true: one day in college a 'Pro-Life' march happened by on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston, and a bunch of friends and I hastily made signs in our basement that read 'Amateur Life' - which yes we thought that was quite funny - and joined in the march. ('When professionalism is on the attack, what do we do?' 'Strike back!' Or more pithily: 'Pay? No way!') A bunch of tough pro-life kids threatened to beat us up and told us we were spoiling their fun, so after a while we went home.]
The only problem here is that I'm waiting on a rather important package to be delivered. And since I don't have a tracking number (ahem) I can't know when it will arrive more precisely than 'today.' So I may end up missing the WGA/fans get-together.
Still, if it sounds like the sort of thing you'd do, you should go do this sort of thing! And hopefully I'll join you later.
