<If your contract is not being renewed I would think that the constructive thing to do would be to look quietly for another network. Criticizing managment on air is a sure way to be "fired.">Under the circumstances I am sure LR would prefer being fired after publicly expressing his feelings rather than meekly keeping quiet and going away after his contract expired in June. If he had just quit on the spot, he could have been subjected to a breach of contract suit. I have been a fan of his show for many years and an avid reader of his newsletter. The thing I like best about his style is that there is never any hype. It is well reasoned, educational and done with enough wit and good humor. I can't say that I have always followed his or his guests advice. However, like the REHP, it has offered me good alternatives to consider. It has been part of the input into making larger financial decisions. If MPT wanted to create a new Fox-like show designed for a much younger audience with shorter attention spans, they should have done it as a stand alone project. There is more than enough room for another financial program on PBS. Trying to force LR into a minor role in a radically altered format was stupid. If they truely wanted to go in a new direction, they should have just announced they would not renew his contract. This is just another case of corporate stupidity showing its ugly face. BRG
