    I found this wonderful news as Judith Light has always been an amazing actress, even when the material seems so slight. Surely, she is amazing as Mrs. Lombardi! Judith Light just brings it! I have been wondering, in light of OLTL’s cancellation, if the writers will find opportunity to remind us of the Craigs, the Woleks and other core families and characters I recall so fondly. That award-winning storyline with Karen Wolek and Marco Dane was so awesome and it is why to this day I champion the soaps. Shame on Procter & Gamble, CBS and ABC for their decisions to cancel such beloved daytime dramas in recent years.
