I'm having trouble keeping up with all the promises this story is committing to answer: Why is Mary Worth so compulsive about helping people? What happened to Mary's father? Why is Mary's mother so uninvolved? And perhaps the biggest question of all: Why did Mary feel so unworthy? What was she guilty of?
But one question has been answered by this morning's Sunday Serenade: What did little Mary do for food?
So if we suffer and endure long enough, perhaps we'll get some character development in this story? I hope.
