Writers' strike as a marketing opportunity

I just tripped across this today: one of the rotating features on the front page of the Harris County (TX) Public Library's website is "Writers' Strike Got You Down? The Library Has You Covered." <a href="http://www.hcpl.net/ebranch/news/archives/000588.html">Here's their page of suggestions</a> for folks suffering withdrawal from their favorite TV shows, such as: <blockquote>Did you know that <a href="http://catalog.hcpl.net/ipac20/ipac.jsp?menu=search&aspect=subtab13&term=dexter%20michael%20hall&index=.GH">Dexter</a> is based on the <a href="http://catalog.hcpl.net/ipac20/ipac.jsp?menu=search&aspect=subtab13&term=dexter%20lindsay&index=.GH">series of books</a> by Jeff Lindsay, beginning with Darkly Dreaming Dexter? Or, that Bones is based on Kathy Reichs <a href="http://catalog.hcpl.net/ipac20/ipac.jsp?menu=search&aspect=subtab13&term=reichs%20kathy%20brennan&index=.GH">Temperance Brennan series </a>beginning with Deja Dead? Do you already miss new editions of The Colbert Report or The Daily Show? We have Colbert's latest book <a href="http://catalog.hcpl.net/ipac20/ipac.jsp?menu=search&aspect=subtab13&term=stephen%20colbert&index=.AH"><b>I Am America (and So Can You!)</b></a> as well as books by <a href="http://catalog.hcpl.net/ipac20/ipac.jsp?menu=search&aspect=subtab13&term=jon%20stewart&index=.AH">Jon Stewart.</a> We also have DVDS, so why not watch reruns <b>you </b>choose?</blockquote> What a great marketing idea!
