Inky, Daily News employees authorize strike

    Employees of the Inquirer and Daily News voted nearly unanimously tonight to authorize a strike. The contact between the Newspaper Guild and management expires Oct. 31. Workers at the two papers will be off the job if a deal is not struck before then.

    About 500 people showed up to the meeting. Only four voted against the authorization to strike.

    The big question is which writers not presently employed by the Inquirer or Daily News will cross the line for the sake of getting byline experience in those papers? Or will management just cease publication of the papers during the strike, reducing revenues, forcing them to definitely fold the Daily News and do deeper layoffs at the Inquirer?

    The bigger question: Will anybody outside the Inquirer/Daily News even notice?

    Does anyone read the paper anymore...any paper, anywhere?

    Oh, they read the internet site. I takes like two monkeys to update that with AP wire copy on a daily basis.

    Yes, that's all newspaper websites are doing -- recycling the same AP copy as every other newspaper website.

    I hope you wrote that post in, say, 1999 and simply forgot to put it up until now.

    MANAGER: Hey! I hired you to work during the holidays. This is the holidays.

    KRAMER: But it's Festivus.

    MANAGER: What?

    KRAMER: You know you're infringing on my right to celebrate new holidays..

    MANAGER: That's not a right.

    KRAMER: Well, it's going to be! Because I'm going back on strike. Come on Elaine. (Takes of his apron, and goes for his coat) It's a walk out!

    ELAINE: No, I got to stay here and wait for the call.

    KRAMER: What? You're siding with management?!

    ELAINE: No, I just..

    KRAMER: (Interrupting) Scab! Scab! (pointing at Elaine) Scab!
