Letters to the Editor LOOKING GOOD his morning, I received my digital copy of the special SAG Awards preview issue from SAGAFTRA. I am stunned at how fabulous this digital issue is ... in-depth articles, embedded content for nominees (which made me feel like I was watching living photos from Harry Potter) and so on. Kudos to the SAG-AFTRA Communications team — they should get an award of their own. Mary Agnes Shearon Washington-Mid Atlantic Local RESIDUALS WAIT he wait time for residuals to be processed and sent out seems to be taking so much longer than it used to — approximately three months. he standard time used to be about six weeks. In fact, six weeks used to be the stated policy. And it changed before the merger, so that can't be the reason. I really would like an explanation that makes sense and not the one given to me over the phone months ago that one of the check writing machines is broken. Because machines can be ixed. I mean really — three months? Does this bother anyone else? Michael Medeiros are always welcome from members.
