Oakdale Confidential:
An As The World Turns Novel

Tuesday, September 12, 2006


Since "Oakdale Confidential's" release, a lot of people have asked me how I feel about the book being ripped apart by certain segments of ATWT fandom who thought it should have been about something else, written in a different way, marketed in a different way, or simply burned prior to publication.

My response comes from a 1989, very short-lived television series that hardly anybody saw, called "Homeroom." (Trivia buffs take note, it was written by future "Desperate Housewives" kingpin Marc Cherry).

In the pilot episode, an old man played by Bill Cobbs, explains:

"I spent forty years driving a bus, thinking about what a pea-brain the District Supervisor is. Then I become District Supervisor, and I realize I've got hundreds of guys driving around thinking what a pea-brain I am. But, you know what? They're stuck driving a bus, and I'm the District Supervisor."

My sentiments exactly.
