Hollywood, CA - Like many of our you, we've been worried about how we'll survive the Writers Strike.

Not to worry. TV's favorite producer, Steven Bochco, says he has a short term solution; he calls it "controlled doses of reality."

"We're not talking about a permanent change, " said TV producer Steven Bochco, "it's just a temporary fix, until we can get the artificial reality back on line," he said.

Speaking from his palatial office atop TV Tower, Bochco carefully explained his theory of "controlled doses of reality" to our TV-starved brains.

"Taken in small doses, reality can be withstood with a minimal degree of discomfort to the viewer. And it IS interactive. So if you don't like your current reality, you can change it.

When we asked him if we could change our reality with a remote control, Bochco answered;

"Instead of changing the channel like you do on your favorite television show, you change your reality, say by walking into a different room... I'm just brainstorming here."

Then, after being summarily dismissed by Bochco, we left his office more confused than ever.

Make Len's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
