Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

The West Wing” is one of those shows that makes you long for the ideal. In this case, a President who is intelligent, surrounds himself with intelligent people, and is written by one of the greatest wordsmiths of shows in this day and age.

NBC series “The West Wing” was great. It still IS great, and holds up right now to the rigors of reviewership (totally a word) and review of an audience 21 years later. It is in a sense, a dream of a White House we should be able to have.

That’s not to say it didn’t have it’s issues, because it did, but we won’t go into everything here. This piece is to inform you that Richard Schiff, who played communications director (and later press secretary) Toby Ziegler has been working on a reunion with the cast to support Black Lives Matter.

This came to the public’s attention when Schiff, who has always been highly political and outspoken, engaged with Twitter followers about his participation in various Black Lives Matter support protests across Los Angeles. He was questioned about whether or not the current series he’s on “The Good Doctor” supported his actions, and where the series stood on their support of the righteous movement.

Schiff responded, that he could not speak for that production, but was indeed working on a reunion of some kind (no details yet) with his fellow “The West Wing” alum.

We’ll be the first in line for it. You hear that Aaron Sorkin? Put Dulé Hill front and center with Martin Sheen, and you’ve got yourself a date.
