We’re having an ice day (it’s like a snow day, but scarier!), so while I’m home from work and nursing a Bloody Mary, I thought I’d talk about something I’ve been thinking about lately.

Sometimes it’s years later, sometimes it’s immediate. But it’s always a good sign when a network seems to trust a writer and/or showrunner.*
*In some cases, anyway. I still don’t totally get the obsession with Ryan Murphy. Social guilt is a helluva drug, I guess.
