I'd like to do a song of great social and political import.

I agree... the material could be always be stronger. But I don't think it's realistic for actors to look at a soap as an artistic outlet, especially if they have an interest in maintaining a long term presence on the show.

I agree with Peter that the writing for Bo was lacking for a number of years. However, I don't think he's being realistic to expect to be doing something "artistic" on a soap. And it's kind of funny for him to admit he was the new actor when he arrived at Days but it's somehow a different situation now that the current new actors affected him. I just wish Days would do something to better explain Bo's absence to free up Hope for a storyline.
