As expected, the contract was presented to the WGA at yesterday's meeting.  As of right now, there is a 48-hour vote taking place to lift the strike.  What that means is that if this passes, the writers could be back to work as early as WEDNESDAY.

This *ISN'T* a vote on the contract... just a vote to lift the strike.  The contract vote will have a 10 day voting window.  If they DON'T vote to lift the strike, the contract vote will still go forward... so essentially they could approve the contract, yet NOT lift the strike until it is approved.  This current vote seems to be just a show of good faith and a more or less "yes, we're going to agree to the contract" kind of thing.

Man... is it true? Can this really be over? Will THE OFFICE staff be back to work on Wednesday? Let's hope so!
