He wasn't my favorite writer, but this is sad news. When he was good, he was really good.

Damn, this is shocking. Definitely one of the most prolific writers in soaps, whether you think he was good for the genre or not.

Wow. Holy crap.

No matter what you thought of Reilly... and I certainly wasn't his biggest fan, that's for sure... this is still a tragedy and a loss for the daytime community.

RIP.
