"I wanted to be sure someone was out here early with one of these," said Joss Whedon, hoisting a sign, which wasn't easy given the gusty winds. (The wind even blew the water from the long rectangular fountain that runs the length of the pickets' loop onto the sidewalk, hitting strikers from the knees down and keeping the sidewalk muddy.)
Whedon arrived at Fox before 8 a.m., and helped set up the water jug and sign-in table. The "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" creator said he's encouraged by the reports of progress but won't get overly enthused until there's "something I can vote on." He also noted the emotional factors that have raged during the strike. Whedon, for one, sez he's not going to be able to paste on a big smile as soon as there's a deal.
"I'm still really angry," he said. "I can't just recalibrate (my feelings) just like that."
