By the way, a little rumor I heard firsthand from a media honcho who is in a position, if not to know, at least be well-informed, suggests that Alice only has funding through November, and that Air America has not been successful in finding advertisers for their shows. Personally, I expect some sort of manufactured reason to close down operations before that, as Alice will need an excuse to avoid admitting that he got his head handed to him.
