  1. Nelson,

    You're right. Susan is a class act and also a loyal castmate. Having grown up watching Susan, my heart aches for her and her colleagues. They've been a part of the lives of many of for 40 years.

    My best wishes to the cast and crew of AMC and OLTL. I hope that they find employment quickly.

    Finally, may the House of Mouse execs suffer such ignoble and shabby firings. The sexism, ageism, and condescension directed to viewers by ABC, ad agencies, and advertisers is appalling.
