More winners and losers from the writers strike! Winner: actor Rob Lowe, who proposed and sold his memoirs during the strike. Loser: Jonathan Karp, the Hachett publisher who placed the winning bid on them. Good thing the $1 mil didn't change hands, because once the strike was over, old Rob-O went back to work and no longer has the time to write the damn thing. For a moment during the strike, you could almost think otherwise, but the fact remains: most people would abandon books in a heartbeat for Hollywood. [NY Observer]
