I haven't read either of them in a while, they were just not representative of what I feel about Days, or what I see other's feel on the forums.
I did however read Lori's blog this week and I have a few items I agree with her on. But they tend to be obvious, like Adrianne Z. is doing a good job and Drake H. is doing a good job.
Some items just make no sense like why would Marlena "pull John's leg" about the memory when she comes out of a coma. Maybe it's just me, but I tend to be fully conscious when I plan a practical joke.
