    Why is Ann Coulter even speaking? She’s such a nasty piece of %!#%@!#%@ Otherwise this looks good.

  2. Another new General Hospital character? Good Lord the cast is the size of LA at this point. The show should start jettisoning some of these people instead

    • Miss Dawn Davenport says:

      The show is a mess. Storylines take so long to meet resolution and characters disappear off the canvas for weeks at a time. There are way too many characters…most of whom add nothing to show. It’s a shame that it has fallen so far and so hard. It’s pretty obvious that the executives at ABC don’t care about the show or the format.

    I am looking forward to remembering JFK Jr. He seemed like a genuinely decent human being (who just happened to be born into a famous/infamous family) and the world will never know what he could have accomplished in his life.
