Pretty much summed up here. (H/T The Mirror Up To Nature) Not to mention why people hate playwrights, too. I also linked to the original post way back when. I was bitching about the general whining, and didn't touch on the allegations. When I got the official Dramatists Guild e-mail, I definitely thought, "Whoa." I really appreciate Nick (and the folks at the O'Neill) going back to look at the actual numbers.
This kind of thing just doesn't help. And it makes it even worse that Rolando and Gary, the people promulgating this hold positions of power at the Dramatists Guild. Not good.
