This show took place in the fictional Midwestern town of Springfield. In its early years, the stories centered on the middle class Bauer family, but later the wealthy Spauldings, Chamberlains, and Lewises, along with the working class Reardons and others, took their own places of prominence, though the Bauers remained the heart of the show.
According to the memoir of Agnes Nixon, a long-time head writer for this show, in the early 1960s, she wrote a storyline featuring the character of Bert Bauer (Charita Bauer) surrounding early detection of uterine cancer with a Pap test after she lost a friend to cancer. Executives of the show were outraged, but Nixon stood her ground. She was eventually granted permission to write the storyline, but was forbidden from using the words cancer, uterus, or hysterectomy in her scripts. The story, the first involving cancer on television, resonated with millions of women, who, after watching the show, scheduled Pap tests. See more »

Great. Then we'll be on the same track.
No. You'll be on separate, parallel tracks.
Is this some sort of, 'If train A is going somewhere and train B . . .'

Hooked for 10 years
I haven't seen every soap, but from what I have seen, this one can claim the best acting talent around. It's too bad Cynthia Watros (Annie) and Wendy Moniz (Dinah) had to go, They're both gifted actresses. Grant Aleksander (Philip) probably can claim best actor presently. Fortunately, the great cast makes up for some of the plot lines, e.g. Michael the angel, the bizarre cloning of Reva, and now Hart is in this metaphorical fight for life. It'll take a week to decide his fate. Pity the punching bag.
