  1. It was a huge mistake to let Crystal Chappell go. She had such great possibilities and could have been pared with anyone. You have lost a VERY talented actress; and a very loyal fan. Until she returns, I will not be back and from what else I have read on "The Pricess and The Sailor", I am not alone. It would be to y our advantage to beg her to come back.
