Why not just off (fictional) Laura too, one-fell-swoop style?
Or better yet, the whole silly shark-jumping-before-it-was-cool serial?
I've never watched GH,but as the oldest surviving daytime serial in the USA
its demise would be a step closer to that of the entire genre,which is a
fraction of its former size...is that a goal for you?

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.

Quite persuasively argued, Louis.

Though you may suspect I'm fibbing here, in fact just awhile ago I was rethinking my unnecessarily snarky comment. Now, SOME snark WAS warranted, mind you, as what prompted it was memories of all the Luke & Laura hoopla, hype which even landed them on the cover of my beloved (back then) Newsweek.

But y'know, then I remembered that a HUGE number of very nice little ol' ladies--and many not-so-ol' ladies, not to mention a scattering of men and these days surely an oversized percentage of transsexuals--simply love that show, and a lot of them simply BECAUSE it nowadays is the senior soap...so yeah, let General Hospital live on in perpetuity, like Today and Tonight.
