sher0082 appreciate your comments and your concern that if we stop watching y & r the show won't survive; i think if the writers really wanted the show to survive they wouldn't have taken the turns they have. I mean enough is enough. If they were really paying attention they would know how frustrated we are and watrching it longer isn't going to help. However, if everyone did stop watching even for a week than maybe the writers would get the shove they need to smarten up. They have ruined many good characters and for us long time viewers these characters are like family to us. I personally stopped watching all other soaps and y r is going to be next. can't stand the frustration anymore. the last year has been tertrible.
