SAG will lay back until the smoke clears. [In reply to] Can't Post

It seems all of this was brought to a head by the call for size doubles. It seems that MEAA & NZ Actors Equity failed to do their homework but were still able to trigger the SAG ballistic attack on the Hobbit. I think that a parlay will happen soon. This will be SNAGA meeting with NZ Actors Equity. This will offer a chance for all parties to save face...union troubles over it is back to MGM.

It was Freudian slip. [In reply to] Can't Post

Snaga is translated as "slave" in the Appendixes
