After months of the same dozen or so mid and end show "bumpers" for other cast members being regurgitated and airing repeatedly in episode after episode, "One Life's" longest-running cast member finally gets her due.  The show unveiled Viki's new bumper today, airing it not once, but twice. With a voice over from Slezak reminding viewers that "OLTL" "will continue in a moment" and to "stay tuned for scenes" from the tomorrow's episode, numerous images of her four decades in Llanview filled the screen, while a few familiar notes reminiscent of "One Life's" 1995-2004 opening theme could be heard in the background. Slezak joined "One Life to Live" on March 17, 1971, becoming...
