We did ask Thaao who wrote the Olympics/Stefano storyline, and he said it was Higley.

Well, they COULD just put Leann on contract.
But I guess some nobody character like Dr. Baker is more important to be a regular than a longtime fan favorite whose portrayer is one of the few actors to have won an acting Emmy for DAYS.
You can't compare them.
LeAnn is a character with roots in Salem who isn't just there to serve the story. Dr. Baker is just here to serve the Nicole story. The guy won't last more then a few months so they are completely different.
See I think this is where our fundamental disagreement is. Where you're saying "Dr. Baker is there to serve the story", I'm saying that it's Dena's job to make stories for characters like Anna.
Dena did have a story for Anna...twice. Don't ask how I know this but she was to be used more then she was. The first time it got derailed by Corday/Scott and the second time by Tomlin. As hoocielicious said, the Dimera story got derailed around the time Tomlin and Whitesell came on. Dena isn't perfect but alot of her stuff hasn't even made it to air and, even when some of it didn't. Dena still tried to use Anna until Tomlin and Whitesell. Now we never even see her.
That is what I don't understand. People keep blaming Higley for the lack of vets when she was actually using them. The vets were in use until Tomlin came on. I like him but I do think he's doing worse for the show then she is.
Could you give us some hints on what they had in store for Anna?
