My husband's new book

My husband, Dr. Ron Linder, was an alternate member of President Nixon's (bogus) Committee on Health Education in 1974. He and co-member Dr. Joy Cauffman documented the shams and suppressions by committee leaders. Following many threats (our phones were tapped), including destruction of Ron's new car, we left Los Angeles and did not communicate with Dr. Cauffman for 37 years. We have lived in fear for what we know about additional corruption within the Nixon administration. If you want to know what happened, and what created the threats, retaliations and fears, the book has just been published by iUniverse. If you get a chance, check it out and let me know what you think. Available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or iUniverse.

The Daytime Emmys

What a great night at the Daytime Emmys. "The Young and the Restless" racked up 7 wins, including Outstanding Supporting Actor for Billy Miller and Outstanding Lead Actor for the amazing Doug Davidson, his first in his 38-year career on the show. It's about time!

Remembering Jeanne

My heart is breaking for Jeanne Cooper's wonderful family and for all of us who truly loved Jeanne through the years. Jeanne was my mentor and an amazing actress and friend. We've been through so much together and I loved her like family. She and Bill Bell were the two people most responsible for my career on "Y&R," and the world is a darker place without them. When Jeanne welcomed you into her life, you knew it and it was a fantastic feeling. This is truly the end of an era, not just for fans of "The Young and the Restless" but for all of the people she touched throughout her long and distinguished career and life. She's always been larger than life and an inspiration to me and so many others. I can't imagine a world without Jeanne Cooper — it won't be the same without her fighting spirit and lust for life, and to say she will be missed is an understatement for what we are all feeling today.
