^ This is a Q&A video, just keep watching to see more still screens with more questions and answers.
She explains it really well.
Someone asked Simone why didn't they put an alternate into the team competition when she dropped out? She said it wasn't allowed per the rules. And she said the alternates had already been sent home. Something about had to be done earlier in Olympics, qualifying rounds, etc, which I didn't follow, but she gave enough info for me to look it up. And I found it here:
"An injured or sick gymnast can be replaced no less than 24 hours before the start of the qualifications. That is when an alternate can be brought in, according to the international federation's rule book.
However, a gymnast who needs to be replaced after qualification – for final events – can only be replaced with another qualifying gymnast. Therefore, none of the alternates can replace Biles, because they did not participate in the qualifying events. Only her current teammates who qualified can replace her."
In a 1966 Variety ad, Irna Phillips and Bill Bell advertise a soap in development 'The Innocent Years'.
So did Bill just use that title later for Y&R, or did the 1966 proposal have some elements of Y&R ??
In a January 1966 Variety ad Irna Phillips and William J Bell under the banner of Dramatic Serials Inc highlighted current and future projects.

I definitely prefer Mason and Julia. But I think there could have been a place for Mary.
Lionel/Augusta/Sophia continue to dominate the show for me. So many complex feelings there. How many times does Sophia have to tell Lionel no? Augusta brought some of this on herself, but I don't blame her either. Especially since Lionel obviously still pines for Sophia. But is he wanting the past or a present? It's all just wow.
I also wonder what could have happened if Louise would have stayed. Would Pamela have brought onto the canvas?
And after Kirk, it is sort of amazing that Eden was redeemable. But somehow, I still feel for her. But poor Cruz.
