The Writer's Guild Strikes!

I saw this sign in a store window in Venice (the one in California, not in Italy), and for the first time (I kid you not), I realized the dual meaning of the word strike.

In Hebrew, the word for strike (of the WGA variety) is Lishbot, which literally means to take a sabbath, or in other words to stop working. Strike means something different. First you threaten, then you strike. First strike. Strike'em dead. Lightening strikes... It's aggressive stuff...
