American Business and Daytime Dramas
On Thursday, April 14, 2011, ABC/Disney Television unleashed a nationwide firestorm in concurrently announcing that it was cancelling two of Daytime television’s longstanding prized soap operas created by the legendary writer, Agnes Nixon, “One Life to Live” and “All My Children.” Nationwide, fans immediately began protesting against these cancellations.
Resistance in the Gulag Archipelago (1918-1956)
An estimated 70 million people may have died in Soviet gulags. Such raises many questions: Where is the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of the Stalinist reign of terror? Where are the six hundred prisoners armed with stolen guns and grenades attacking the Nazi guards, literally blowing up the death houses at Treblinka, and fleeing into the nearby Polish forests? Where are the suicide missions?
