Without getting into the whole history of the show as I have done in past columns (and will soon delve into again with the re-posting of an article I wrote for SON in honor of the show's 39th anniversary back in 2007), I would like to take a moment to recall the rich and endearing legacy that is Llanview and "One Life to Live." What began in the mid-1960s as an alternative plan for creator Agnes Nixon following the original rejection of the concept that would later become "All My Children,"...
