Great column OBK!
I agree with a lot of what you wrote, but my favorite sentence is: "There must be an unwritten rule that if you run out of story ideas, make John someone else." I bet if you asked Drake, he'd agree with that; I think he's quietly complained about that over the years. While I do like seeing John as the lead male character on Days, I like it more when his character is consistent, and I hate how they're always 'ret-conning' his history. This year, as you're saying, was the worst. An idea that began with such promise went downhill so fast.
I also second what you said Ellie. I wish they had stopped ret-connning John as well.
