First the radio critic was fired, then the film critic, then the music. Too late, it dawned on us, we were all going to be discarded, in my case after 26 years in the television chair. Only the ballet critic, Nicholas Dromgoole, survived, because his name was last on the hit list, and before it could come up Perry himself was deposed. The bright young "new voices" who replaced the rest of us were mostly gone and forgotten within a year or two.
