Maybe in another world, the passion would be there to sustain generations of fans necessary to dedicate all the days of our lives but alas we are just fighting between the young and restless and the bold and the beautiful enough to have to stay in general hospital. Don't you see all my children that's as the world turns here from the dark shadows in between port charles and santa barbara.

I really hate to see the show go. I am a working mom, but watch the show everday via internet. I wish all the actors the best and hope that somehow the baseline of the show can continue.

Don't worry...i predict the familys from the show will all move to new towns. They will be showing up in port charles and landview before you know it.
Josh and Reva could move in next door to sonny.

I have watched GL since I was a child. My mother watched. I hate to see Gl gone. I DVR GL daily and look forward to watching. Seems like so much has changed in this world. I wish some things would stay the same. My age bracket and my mothers age bracket are as important to PG as anyones. We have helped make what PG is and regret that in such a economic challenged time that PG would forget those people. It is heart breaking that this world is on the path that it is. PG, I will remember what you think of the older generations!

After the sorry handling of the Olivia/Natalia storyline, I am off soaps for good.
