As the World Comes to a Screeching Halt

The writing has been on the wall. The Soap Opera is a dying species. When, after 57 years, Guiding Light came to an end earlier this year I knew, eventually, the same could happen to My Show. Eventually. I really thought others would go before it. Well before it. Boy was I wrong. CBS announced today that they are cancelling As The World Turns. The soap opera I have watched (with my grandmother and my mother) nearly my entire life will come to an end, after 54 years, in September, 2010.

It feels kind of like I got bad news about an old friend today.
