Andy,

I entirely agree with you that afraid is a better adjective than stupid. I'm not one of those who bash CEO's for their high salaries, but you had better earn it once you get it.

I don't think afraid is typically synonomous with leadership, at least not in a major U.S. corporation. I want leadership in a company I invest in - not fear and pack mentality.

I think dumping Brunetti would be a plus for the stock price right now. I don't see any confidence beyond the board room in him turning NRG around and restoring the dividend soon.

-Chuck
