    I hereby nominate Lily & Scrimmage to be the "co_head" writers of GH. And no, I did not say "cone-head". Both of your scenarios are so going to happen. Odd Couple, Sunshine Boys--either one works for me.

    Hi everyone.

    SouthGAgirl- Welcome. Glad you decided to join the fun.

    Scrimmage- you out did yourself- I loved your spinoff short story.

    I h haven't had a chance to watch yet, busy day, glad it’s time to relax a little bit. What have they done with JaSam? I don’t think I’ve seen them all week. I’m thinking GH is becoming OLTL.

    I hated reading that Robert, Ethan and Holly have departed Port Charles. I hope the writers have the since to bring all three of these characters back and soon.
    Scrimmage, you out did yourself

    WatFan- ITA with you about Sam and Carly. Sam has had to put up with Carly for years. This is something I blame Jason for. How many people allow their best friends to supersede their spouse or SO? There can only be two people in a marriage, Jason tried to explain that to Carly prior to the wedding. Something tells me Jason is going to be furious with Sam, but IMO Carly is being ridiculous. She needs to pay attention to her own family and allow others to do the same.

    Hi Redcanuck- are you missing South Florida? Hope it hasn’t been too cold in your neck of the woods. Just remember spring is on its way.

    bayoubtr- I second that. Scrimmage and Lily would be awesome.

    bayou - Conehead would work for me. Scrimmage does all the creative heavy lifting.

    *****OFF TOPIC********

    Mama- Please check in when you have a chance. Hope all is going well and you and the family have settled in from the move.

    We all know that the big name stars on GH will get their fair share of airtime, even now that the refugees from OLTL are on the show. The problem is that the newbies are taking up a lot of the extra time that would otherwise be used to involve core supporting characters like Edward, Tracy, Diane, Alexis, Mac, Epiphany, Spinelli, Shawn, Coleman, and Molly. That’s not even mentioning Wilson the Disappearing Dog. It’s like the newbies are an invasive species, sucking up all the air, eating all the food, and crowding out the lesser regular characters who might not have a lot of hype behind them, but who give the show a lot of its color and some much needed variety.

    Personally, I wouldn’t mind if we never saw or heard from Drs. Steve, Maggie, Matt, and Ewen, or TJ again, but that’s because they have yet to establish themselves as being particularly compelling, and they haven’t been carrying their weight anyway. I just don’t want to see the other people I mentioned be neglected just because the new head writer brought some of his own personal faves from his previous gig along with him, and wants to continue writing for them at the expense of long time cast members that THIS audience is already invested in.

    I’m willing to let everybody adjust and allow some time for some of the dust to settle before I make any judgment on how well I think the experiment with the OLTL crossover is working out, but I sense a disturbing trend that leads me to believe that slowly but surely the new regime is going to try to shift the emphasis to characters that the writers know so well, and are more comfortable with, but who have little or no connection to the rich history of the show they’re on now, or with the vast majority of us who never watched OLTL. That would be a fatal mistake for GH.
