2000th post! biggrin.gif

I say dig up Trent Jones or James Houghton from some place and make them HW. I think Alden's content at B&B and Jack F. Smith should retire, though at this point he's miles ahead of Latham.

I say any of the old school Y&R writers, who trained under Bill Bell, will do.

I doubt Maria will be writing after the strike, she most likely did it as a favor to her family. Also being FiCore doesn't guarantee her or Griffith long-term employment as writers...

Well, if Maria wanted to write long-term (maybe she's got the itch again and wants to write again), she could since she's married to one of the bosses right. LOL

I know, but only as a SW for a couple of years. She's not experienced enough to be HW, maybe Co-HW with an experienced writer.

Also, I was just poking fun at DaytimeFan for wanting MAB to be HW based on 3 episodes. I just thought that was funny. laugh.gif

I still say that Kay Alden will continue to write for B&B; Janice Ferri Esser will be amongst the strikers because she's groomed for bigger footsteps as a future B&B or Y&R (co-)hw. Just my speculation though.

OK, I haven't been here for a while but I saw elsewhere some talk today about Dena Higley running things while Hogan Sheffer is gone and that resulting in some different directions for the show.

Can someone bring me up to speed on what is known as for as the DOOL strike writing situation?

Haha, yes Toups it's all in good fun. I'm like someone who's walked through the desert for a year and half under LML and am getting my first drink of water thanks to MAB and Griffith. Also, I admit to being a complete sycophant when it comes to the Bells, in my opinion they walk on water (yes, even Lauralee).

I think Janice Ferri Esser is also destined for a bright future at either Y&R or B&B. I think she's been a vocal striker so that she can rise to the top of the Bell ladder without any union negativity.

I think Kay Alden, and it kills me to say it, is done as a HW at any soap. I don't think she actually wants to work as a HW anymore and take on the responsibility found in the corporate soap world. I think the whole thing with LML and Sony really hurt her. She was bitter about it when she gave her talk at MIT, I think the whole experience really left a bad taste in her mouth. I think she'll either stay at B&B in the capacity she's in now or she'll return to Y&R as a consultant of some sort.

I agree about Kay Alden. From what I read earlier this decade, she was pretty much co-HW-in-name-only from 2002-2006.
