    I remember my father changing his shift at work to coincide with the soap opera "Edge of Night" which surrounded a storyline of (DID, amnesia, sexual escapades, and the mob). It was similar to "General Hospital," with a harder edge to the storylines which were great. As a child, I would sneak a look, but was not allowed to watch the soap opera, the storylines and plots showed advanced writing and production abilities based on the time-era that it was being viewed on television. Happy 92nd Birthday to Robert E. Short. Congratulations to Kevin Feige for another great production in the series of the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise movie.
