  12. Congrats to Mindy. Moment of pause for “The Office” as in if her show get’s developed, and her time is taken away from “The Office”. I hope Greg Daniels has some superb writing talent in the wings. Mindy has written some of the BEST Office stuff. (speaking of Season 7 of course as it says she’ll be around for season 6)

  13. Wow – congratulations, Mindy!! Very well-deserved. It always makes me happy when true talent doesn’t go unrecognized.
