Yipee! That's my reaction to the news that Katherine's doppelgänger Marge (the tacky, frowsy waitress) is coming back to Y&R. That switcheroo story back in 1990 — way before I started at Digest — was one of my all-time faves and Jeanne Cooper was an absolute hoot in both roles (if you weren't watching then, you missed the hilarious scene when La Chancellor had to impersonate Marge trying to act like Kay). I even sent my one and only letter of high praise to then-head writer Bill Bell, and imagine my surprise when his wife Lee personally wrote me back with a thank-you note. With their daughter-in-law Maria now as Y&R's top scribe, it's almost a slam-dunk that the next Kay/Marge chapter will be fun and exciting.
