Yes, Corday mismanages, but there is also a thread here (or maybe it's at SON) where it says that ABC is having to make salary cuts, too. His mismanagement and the economy together are lousy timing.

The "economy" is not the big factor, it's plays a part, but it isn't the major reason why DAYS has to make all of these cuts.
Fact remains, Corday and company have mismanaged this show's budget for YEARS. If the show wasn't in debt, and managed its budget successfully over the past 10 years or so, it wouldn't be in as bad of a predicament as it is in today. Why do you think the ABC soaps and the Bell soaps still manage to hold on to most of the veteran cast they have - THEY KNOW HOW TO BALANACE THEIR BUDGET.
The 40% budget cut is massive yes, but had this show been in a stable financial place beforehand, they could've worked around it more successfully.
Plus, do you think KA is really going to say 'it's because of that jackass Corday?"
