I have a question about Jay McQuaide-- I gather they didn't renew his 
contract at WBZ.  I know he got another job, but my understanding is 
that he is out of radio?  Ditto for Flo Jonic, as I recall-- she did 
some story that the government didn't like (and she turned out to 
have been 100% accurate) but she was fired or something?  I may be 
remembering incorrectly-- I've been sick with bronchitis so I am not 
my usual sweet, charming and alert self.  :)
