VMI cadet charged with rape

A Virginia Military Institute cadet has been charged with rape and sodomy after a female cadet reported she was the victim of sexual assault. The daytime drama’s declining viewership led to the decision, according to a CBS spokeswoman. The show, which the Guinness Book of World Records lists as the longest-running television drama, first aired on NBC radio in 1937 as a 15-minute serial, the spokeswoman said.
