I'm glad they're finally going to be able to receive compensation for their work.  At the same time, I'm somewhat saddened that a precedent wasn't set to destroy Hollywood accounting.

I'm still insulted that nobody taught me this in college.

For some reason they taught us all the moral and ethical and technical things. But not the useful things. Those you have to work out for yourself.

I can feel ya.  Went to then-Indiana Business College (it became Harrison College after I graduated) and got an Associate's in Accounting.  And while not explicitly taught the bad ways (this was post-Enron so they had to make it look presentable), I could very easily see them.  So as soon as I got my degree I told myself 'no thank you, I have too much of a conscious for this shiat' and never used the damn thing.

/ Degree was kind of worthless in '04 or whenever I actually got it.
// Degree's really worthless now since Harrison went under with all the other for-profits in '18.

They need to write a comeback song called
Phoenix From The Ashes. And have a 16" replica...

Harry Shearer is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being ever, so Bravo to him on the protection of his franchise.

It's nice to finally get some perspective on the case.

Harry Shearer has all those Simpsons millions to console him.
