Dear Soaps,

You yourself said long ago that Claire Labine hated the corporate environment at soaps today. Why do you think she changed her mind and agreed to take over GL? Can we really expect P&G to allow her to do her own thing?

Dear Mike,
I honestly hope P&G, CBS and executive producer Paul Rauch allow the Labines to craft their stories without the traditional interference, or the trouble the Labines ran into at OLTL. I suspect Claire's honeymoon period will be a long one, as even Rauch told me that he's excited about her arrival. However, Claire has never been known as a Nielsens wizard, despite her extraordinarly rich stories. I hope CBS and P&G's quest for higher ratings don't lead them to cuckold the poor woman.
