ENOUGH!!  When are you going to get it that

this cannibalism has to stop?  

February 26, 2009

The Screen Actors Guild is racing toward the rocks and the quibblers, the anonymous and the gutless critics can’t seem to quit flailing about, blades drawn, apparently unaware that they’re only stabbing themselves and destroying the union they claim to care so much about.

David White is a man of integrity.  His willingness to step into the SAG maelstrom has surprised many, but those who know him bless him for caring so much about the union he served fairly and honorably as its general counsel that he is willing to set aside his own business and step back into the fray to help sort things out.

As David White clearly knows, the Screen Actors Guild is more than the frustrated, wounded egos that have turned it into the industry’s laughingstock.  It is an honorable union with a storied history. It represents the hopes and dreams of thousands of men and women of all ages, types, races, creeds, genders and belief systems who want the chance to express themselves and have their shot at the brass ring.

The membership is not served by this back-stabbing and blood-letting.  They want to work.  They want to be represented by reasonable, thoughtful people interested in creating the conditions in which that can happen.  They are sickened by the continued chorus of whining, screaming, name-calling, back-biting, bickering and smearing.  They want the Screen Actors Guild to regain the stature and respect it once enjoyed so they can get on with their careers.

David White represents exactly that hope.
