LOL, I've always been a wonder to my Pol Sci professors. I'm very far right when it comes to social issues. But I'm very left when it comes to the economy, and domestic/policy. I registered as in Independant and it seems to suit me.

oh and even though I am a liberal Democrat there are a couple Republicans I like: Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, Michael Bloomberg, and Arnold Schwarzenegger

Kylie since you live in CA...didn't Arnold pass a bill that would eliminate the deficit? He is good on the economy, environment protection, education (at first he wasn't but we had record funding last year and he wants to pay teachers on quality rather than senority and I agree there) and also good on education with banning junk food from schools, and healthcare he is also good on I believe his new budget provides universal healthcare for all California residents

Something like that, yeah. But I hate him for what he's done to the JC's and College's. It's sick to cut money from there. I know sooooooo many kids who have been forced to drop out of college because of the increase in tuition. And not only that, but they raise prices, and then raise, rather then lower, qualifactions for Financial Aid, making even less people able to pay.

He's an alright Governor. I think he inherited a lot of problems from Grey Davis that he's never been able to get rid off. Oh well, I'll be out of here by September, and I didn't vote for him, so he won't be my problem anymore. LOL

Actually he lowered community college fees from $26 a unit to $20 a unit

Yeah, but he raised them to that in the first place, so it doesn't count.LOL Thank god his proposed $32 a unit break didn't go through or my bestfriend (a semester from transfering to a University) would had to have dropped out. She can barely afford it as it is, and doesn't qualify for financial aid.

    • Susan Seaforth Hayes/Tracey Bregman - Julie/Donna DOOL Joanna /Lauren Y&R David O'Brien/Jada Rowland - Kip/Amy Secret Storm/Steve/Carolee TD
    • Bill Bell recast Y&R Ashley twice (1988 and 1996) and in hindsight, neither worked. Can we think of anyone who would have worked in either 1988 or 1996?
    • Dorothy McGuire's arc was two months, May-July 1984. I think it was mentioned here that it was a big deal back then for Y&R to get a Golden Age Hollywood actress in a short arc.
    • While I agree that the writing in 1980 did not match the prior regime, but I would argue that the conception of new citizens of Bay City was intriguing.  Having a character based on the story of Patty Hearst was unique.  The idea of a character hiding from her past is a soap staple, but a nurse who is actually an heiress that had experienced a kidnapping attempt is unique.  Of course, it is ridiculous that after trying to change her name, the entire family would follow her to town, but I particularly liked Rick and his romance with Marianne. I also enjoyed the Cecile/Pat feud at Brava. It was one of the only times that Cecile was written as smart and conniving. And, I think it was good writing to use their feud as the introduction of the Harry Must Die book which became the clue in Janice's plot to poison Mac.  Given that Iris was being spun off to Texas, I think Miranda was good substitute.  She was well placed to be a rival for Mac's affection as well as a plaything for the nefarious Philip Lyons.  Also, Jason's relationship with Tracy was interesting and it is the only role that I enjoyed as played by smarmy-guy-specialist Warren Burton It is one of those times in soap history when it is hard to pinpoint the cause of the issue because with the change in tone from Lemay, the loss of Willis and Iris, and the increased competition from OLTL it became a big ship to readjust.  It was still an adult oriented soap, which I appreciate, even though there were heightened story elements that were uncharacteristic.  It may be that I am a Tom King apologist (as well as a Lemay fan), but I think there is a lot of blame to spread all around at the time, and it wasn't just King's fault.
    • Tom Langan cast several 1980s Y&R actors on Reilly's Days: Deborah Adair, Eileen Davidson, Nick Benedict, Jaime Lyn Bauer, Lauren Koslow.
