On Liz, not owning Eric but getting owned by him

The interesting thing about the website as it stood ten years or so ago was that people could actually ask the characters things and get an answer written in character. The reason that I mention this is that most, if not all, of the e-mails submitted had to do with warning Liz that Eric was a cheating cheater who cheats; since the answer was, as I said, written in character, the letters written before she caught him in the act were the same sort of pious refusal to see the situation as it was that we had to endure in her letters and in the strip and the letters after shrill bullhuckey about how everyone is a fink who refused to warn her so we could see her suffer. The form her pea-brained refusal to admit that she isn't paying attention to her surroundings generally seemed to take was idiotically bleating about how she didn't own the philandering shnook. The reason that I mention this is that the soap opera Lynn wanted to make of Phil's relationship with Georgia opened up with her saying that no, she didn't own Phil and would have ended up with her sitting in the church wondering why all the selfish people never cared to warn her about the obvious. Good thing that Joan was made of stern enough stuff to gently discourage Lynn from destroying her strip and everyone else's life in the name of a drama no one needed.
