NEW JOB

I'm now on the writing staff of Last Resort, a new show on ABC premiering this fall. It's created by Karl Gajdusek, a terrific playwright/feature writer, and Shawn Ryan, creator of The Shield (which as you know if you know me, is my favorite show of all time, so I'm still getting my head around that). Just started. It's great, and the writer's room is full of amazing people...

ROLE REVERSAL

This is a great New York Times article about how Qaddafi's torturers in Libya are being held captive by their former victims.  Nasser reads like a great fictional character, and his conflicts and story are riveting.  One of the best articles I've read in the Times in years.
