That's pretty common after shootings, though. After Columbine, the season 3 finale of Buffy was postponed (although Canada somehow wound up broadcasting it as scheduled anyway), that's happened before.
Chubbuck's family received the footage after her suicide, so if it wasn't destroyed, someone in her family most likely has it. There is a great documentary on Budd Dwyer called Honest Man, which included interviews with his widow and kids, and it showed both the speech he made beforehand and the shooting, uncensored. I had to turn away when they got to that part. What makes it worse is that Central Pennsylvania had been hit by a bad snowstorm that day, which means that there were several children home from school who witnessed it, and a few PA stations showed it uncensored during their evening newscasts.
Alison was only two years younger than me. Adam was a year older than me.
Tatum O'Neal told a story in her first book, A Paper Life, about how her father took her to the Playboy Mansion when she was 12, and how bored she was there--she said she would "watch movies, eat candy, and play video games" while her dad interacted with everyone else. She did say she met Melanie Griffith--who was briefly involved with Ryan--for the first time there, though.
She made it very clear though that her dad dragged her along (and of course, duh, she was a Hollywood kid--and he has proven many times that he is a HORRENDOUS father), and that the mansion, in her words, "wasn't exactly a place where teenagers hung out", so...I don't know.
^^^^I have actually heard that she and Selena Gomez were somewhat responsible for making that popular, in part from performing it in concert. So...yeah. Make of that you will. I think Cheap's head just exploded in rage.
I forgot to mention this earlier, but I kind of wish they just said "Screw it" and given the HW/co-HW position to Liz Korte. She's the longest-serving writer at GH now, and seems to be well-respected. Why not? She did it before in 2001 with Michele Val Jean, between Guza's departure and McTavish coming on.
I watched TCS reruns very briefly when I was a kid, and while I was never a huge fan of it, I've always LOVED the opening credits, especially the one from seasons 6 and 7 (the one with the "best elevator music" quote). But I can't bring myself to watch any of them of YouTube now (I'm the kind of person who watches TV openings on YT because it's fun).
And talk about making history look very different, considering just how essential TCS was/is to 80's TV, not to mention the fact that it was THE show that made NBC a successful network again after coming apart so badly in the late 70's/early 80's.
