Go baby! I like they also said the actor's issue is close to be resolved as well - I certainly hope so. This is a long time in coming and I am anxious to hear that it's official.

The reporters, Claudia Eller and Ben Fritz, who have written other stories seem pretty solid....and I doubt the LA Times would be so bold vs say for example The Sun.

It's the only thing that really ever made any sense (well, recently that is). But it would be great to get something more official on that too.

The union issue is mentioned.... [In reply to] Can't Post

"close to being resolved" (maybe, maybe not)

The official go ahead "in the next few days" hopefully will still be given despite the issues. That does make sense with the union activity and discussion off offers etc.

"Pictures of green flashes. Green flashes are real (not illusory) phenomena seen at sunrise and sunset, when some part of the Sun suddenly changes color (at sunset, from red or orange to green or blue). The word “flash” refers to the sudden appearance and brief duration of this green color, which usually lasts only a second or two at moderate latitudes"

OMG [In reply to] Can't Post

My poor brain.

My poor nerves..

My poor heart.

My poor hair...it's a good thing I've had my hair done 2 weeks ago, so I can't see the 4 new gray hairs I must have gotten in my bangs the past 4 days. Yep, a gray hair a day sounds about right--arg--I'm too young for thisCrazyTongueUnsure

I read this and almost cried. I have a lump in my throat as big as a golf ball right now.

I don't think the LA Times would be reporting this unless it had more than a grain of truth in it--yes, even the union stuff. All we can do is wait for answer--but after 6 yrs of waiting, a few more days, if this is true, is nothing.

If Xo posts a green light announcement, I am going to stare at the screen and cry for 5 minutes, then print it out, take it to photot shop, blow it up to 3 feet tall, then frame it on my front door,.

This is worse, I swear, than reading "The PRince's Tale" and "The Forest Again" chapters from Harry Potter 7 again. ..

LA Times is not known for rumor-mongering [In reply to] Can't Post

and because it is based in the same city as the major Hollywood studios, the reporters have good contacts within the industry. I can't imagine they would report something unless they had it checked out.

Well, as much as any MSM source I suppose, and probably more so as [In reply to] Can't Post

this section is written by reporters who are in the heart of the business. Are their sources absolutely reliable all of the time...no....but to run with this headline would require some fact checking vs a tabloid (I would hope).

Maybe when Kristin Thompson weighs in we will have more insight as to the source.
