Medea Gets a Union Card
It appears as though modern day chitlin' circuit proprietor and resident handkerchief head Tyler Perry--the creative force behind such high end cinematic fare as Sapphire's Family Reunion and Meet the Clowns--has decided to boldly move into the 20th century by agreeing to allow the writers who work on his film and television productions to unionize. How generous of you, Mr. Perry. You are such a kind man and forward thinker. I'm sure your idol, Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry, aka Stephin' Fetchit, would be so proud of you. Keep up the good work, Mr Perry. Who knows, maybe one day your writers might even get their very own sharpeners for those number 2 pencils that they've been writing with? Anything is possible, right? Well, on second thought, maybe we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves.
