  1. I'm with Melroser. I wouldn't take anything seriously unless or until it has been officially confirmed. But...man...it'd be nice to see Robin Strasser go head-to-head with Louise Sorel as, for instance, Vivian's sister.

    In retrospect, though, it was much more believable than everything that came after. The long-lost son of Silver Kane and maybe Dr. Damon Lazarre? Raised by not-so-dead grandmother Goldie? Works for me!
  3. Days actor returns

    That...isn't really saying much. Oy, is THAT (Will/Paul/Sonny) the triangle we have to look forward to? I guess bringing in someone new for Will is out of the question.

    Rick Hawkins! HA! I totally forgot that shout-out to "Mama's Family"! (Hawkins was the show's producer; KL story editors Chuck Bulot & M.J. Cody served similar functions at MF.) I think it wasn't too long afterward when MF's writers returned the favor, so to speak, by having Thelma say there was more skulduggery going on at the Harper house than on KL.

    Wait, Vivian tried to feed some damn birds from a hot-air balloon!?
  6. TBH, I wouldn't be surprised if Babs Bloom ends up co-HW'ing with Shelly.
  7. The Politics Thread

    The GOP's efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare ARE aggravating, if only because there never seems to be an end to them, even as statistic after statistic says the majority of the American public do NOT want to see it repealed. But, the GOP practically seized control of the House, Senate and presidency on the promise that they WOULD repeal, so I guess they'll just keep 'em coming until they pass something (or until the next election cycle, whichever comes first).

    Which served no purpose in the long run. Honestly, they were better off suggesting Josh was another, long-lost son of Eric Kane's.

    Thinking of the diehards from Trump Nation reminds me so much of what happened to the cult members at Jonestown and Waco, not to mention to those Heaven's Gate people, who committed suicide because they believed Jesus had hitched a ride on a comet on his way back to Earth. It's terrifying what COULD happen with those who would follow Trump off a proverbial and literal cliff, if only because others will go down with them.
  10. As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    Frankly, yes. In fact, it's a big reason why I don't watch much television or movies these days, aside from reruns and old movies. Lord knows I'm no prude, but it seems as if the entertainment industry is so much in love now with "edgy" and "dark" and characters who, if I'm being candid, I'd never welcome into my home under any circumstances.

    Trump Regrets Putting Obamacare Repeal On Top of Agenda, Blames Ryan Rule #3 in "The Art of the Deal": When you fail, blame the other guy. If I were Paul Ryan, I'd be pissed right about now. Between this [!@#$%^&*] and the deal Trump cut with the Democrats...? Let's just say that a part of me (again, if I were Paul Ryan) would be very, VERY slow to reforming the tax codes, if only to make Trump look like an even bigger loser.
  12. The Politics Thread

    Say, what's this I hear (via NPR's "Morning Edition") about Trump cutting some sort of deal with the Democrats in Congress?
  13. The Politics Thread

    You know, I'm not going to get mad at McCain for this? AFAIK, he never said he wasn't for repealing and/or replacing Obamacare. He just wanted it done the right way, with open hearings and bipartisan efforts to amend the bill. The total opposite, I think, of whatever McConnell and his team tried to sneak through.
  14. The Politics Thread

    If those people would rather listen to Rush Limbaugh over an actual meteorologist...well...I'm sorry to say in this case, but they deserve whatever comes their way.
  15. The Politics Thread

    IMO, the DNC won't cut loose Bernie or his supporters, because they want to maintain the attitude of fairness and inclusivity in politics. However, I ask, should a political party be so welcoming toward a potential candidate who makes it clear from the start that he is not one of them, that he does not endorse the same ideologies that they do, and that his number-one objective in aligning himself with the party is to deconstruct it from within? Look, I'm sure there were MANY reasons why Debbie Wasserman Schultz had to go as DNC chair, but although her methods (meaning, of course, those damn emails) in pushing Hillary as her party's nominee over Bernie were questionable, at the end of the day, I can't exactly question why she did what she did that ultimately proved her undoing. IA. And if they were to remove the competition, guess what? The Chinese would still hand us our asses at the end. Because -- and forgive me if this offends anyone -- but Americans are, in fact, the laziest, most incurious bunch of assholes on the planet. If it means breaking even a LITTLE sweat, we out. If I were that soldier, I'd go AWOL and then defect to my wife's country. I'm not kidding.
