Transcript Satellite Potatoes It was 11:45 a.m. and I was late. Almost all the good seats were taken. Anybody who is anybody knows that you must be seated with your lunch by twenty-to-twelve, otherwise you take a chance and end up on the floor. My watch showed 11:55. The credits from the previous show were rolling on the screen. There was a tension in the air — more like anticipation. Suddenly, a silence came over the room. The music began to play. You could almost hear a pin drop the room was so quiet and all eyes were glued to the screen. Not even final exams would have stopped this crowd from watching the continuing saga of "All My Children," in the University Underground Sat ellite. Erica — the show's egotistical sex symbol, tigress, witch, and all around neurotic — was the focus of this segment. Once again her life was in jeopardy. She is seven and one half months pregnant and in the hospital because toxemia is making her delirious. She hates the hospital but knows that if she doesn't stay, she will endanger her life and that of her unborn child. The satellite, quiet for the first few minutes of the program, now begins to explode with opinions about Erica's condition. One person shouts "Her contract must be up," while another one feels that ABC is trying to con the viewers once again by making them watch day after day (not that this crowd would miss even one day). Finally, there is a young girl sitting in front who looks genuinely worried. "What will happen if Erica dies?" she asks. "What will Travis do?" The audience is becoming bothered that Erica's condition is the same. The show is half over. "Oh, why doesn't she just relax?" shouted one observer. Erica has had about 12 or 13 visitors, but her condition remains the same. The audience begins to leave. No one mentions the program again. It is not necessary, because tomorrow we will all return for the next episode of "All My Children." — Esther Vosnakis Karin Hokwerda Jacob Ho-Tung Matthew E. Hundley Christopher Irving Angela L.
