As a 20-year member of the Writers Guild of America, Jonathan Prince was startled to learn that his union was accusing him of being a scab during the writers strike. But he was even more stunned when he learned that the guild had been relying on a secret informant, code-named Clyde, who he and his attorney said had gained unauthorized access to his private e-mails. Prince, executive producer of recent TV dramas "Cane" and "The Cleaner," was among a dozen writers who were investigated for picking up their pens and working -- or failing to report those who did -- during the 100-day writers strike that began in November 2007.

Thank you, Jonathan Prince, NBC and NBC Entertainment President Jeff Zucker for going to bat for all the entertainment industry employees who are out of jobs and have been for a long time because our runaway production is now supporting Canada and Australia (" 'Dreams' May Hint at What Lies Ahead for Merger," Oct. 9). L.A. is hurting, and it is not just the entertainment industry's former employees. It is the restaurants they no longer frequent, yard services they no longer use, season tickets they no longer buy, clothes they no long purchase, trips that aren't taken, movies that are missed because that $20 can buy a couple of days of groceries for your family.

Remember those ads years ago trumpeting "the heartbreak of psoriasis?" Ad writers had a field day, painting it as a loathsome disease one was stuck with forever. Well, we've got a blight just as unslightly now on our movie screens, the switched-identity plot, and if feels as if we are never going to be rid of it , either.

The ingenious and amusing "Camp Nowhere" fulfills every summer camp veteran's dream of escaping all those killjoy rules, while spotlighting the antic talents of Christopher Lloyd. Lloyd, the eccentric Doc of the "Back to the Future" trilogy and Uncle Fester in "The Addams Family" movies, plays anarchic Dennis Van Welker, an exuberant former junior high drama teacher relieved of his duties after he thought it would be a good idea to attempt a musical version of "Silence of the Lambs."

John Edwards is reshuffling the ranks of his top staff, adding two prominent Democratic operatives as senior advisors and shifting some responsibilities from campaign manager David E. Bonior. Paul Blank and Chris Kofinis, leaders of the labor-backed anti-Wal-Mart effort WakeUpWal Mart.com, were expected to join the Edwards campaign as early as next week. Blank would take over day-to-day campaign operations, and Kofinis would serve as communications director.

William Banks, the main character on A&E's upcoming original drama "The Cleaner," talks to God. "The Cleaner" is based on stories of real-life former addict and "extreme interventionist" Warren Boyd, whose mission it is to get people clean by any means necessary. His on-screen persona, William, played by Benjamin Bratt, arrives at this position after hitting rock bottom and striking a deal with God in exchange for a second chance at life. And William keeps in touch with the big guy, even if God doesn't talk back.
