Birthdays

I faithfully check the birthdays every morning and the deceased names take up space that could be use for living daytime drama names.  Doug Davidson, who has been on soaps for 3,100 episodes and several moves and other TV shows, was not listed but someone named Bob Kane, a writer who died ack in 998 was.  This is just one example of many.  Forget listing the dead and remember those still alive and working today.

Given the current popularity of superheroes, and the film Joker (2019) being in theatres now, the writer Bob Kane, creator of Batman, is very much of interest to a lot of people.

It’s hard for me not to sympathize with the sentiment and although Bob Kane created Batman I always thought the purpose of this place was to help actors find work and network. Writers are Not generally of much interest to the movie going public but are to professionals; This is kind of an interesting debate. I’d be curious to see this put to a vote to people in the industry as opposed to the moving going public

That's IMDbPro (pro.imdb.com), not IMDb (www.imdb.com).
