"Picketing But Still Punchy"

Over at the NYT, a Daily Show writer uses the Sunday Style section as a strike diary:

12:15 p.m. A man in a suit passes by. He yells, “I hope you all get fired!”

Look — this is weird for us, too, you know. Writers are not a naturally combative species. We’re used to sitting in front of our computers and crying. Fresh air is like poison to us. If protocol didn’t dictate otherwise, it’s very likely we would never wear pants. But we’ve given up our salaries and our jobs — easily the only jobs we’re qualified for — to stand outside and yell at people. So, for the sake of decency, could you please not yell back?

I seem to have digested something in the past twenty-four hours that makes my digestive system deeply unhappy. It is very annoying.
