We will miss you. You are a fine reporter and so calm and thoughtful. I hope your next life will be just as successful and satisfying.

If it were really "public" I would think that show hosts would inform their trusty, dedicated listeners of days when they will not be on air so that those dedicated listeners will not be surprised when tuning in they find a guest host for a particular day or days. Maybe a little more dedication to one's dedicated listeners would gain more bucks since that's what this is really all about. And I often wonder if employees of NPR salaries are made "public" since that's who pay them.

Any epic fails of the Sunday Puzzle that Liane would care to mention?

Please ask Liane if she intends to do the Sunday Crossword now? She was brilliant with Will Short. Best wishes for a wonderful retirement.

During the pledge drive you keep saying that WNYC needs to pay $2.5 million annually to pay for the services of NPR.


Didn't NPR get $225 million from the Kroc Estate? Didn't this set up an endowment for NPR?

Why does NPR then need to bleed its local stations to cover operating expenses? And if this is "public" radio, then why are these issues not discussed on the air?

Where is the money?
