i heard class action chatter around GMU but Howard's not going to pursue. Maybe it'll change but my guess is Howard's an "ok" job when combined with the guaranteed DC youth cash cow. They're all acquaintances and buds so he's likely wiser to avoid the awkwardness and wait out Leone and Manya. He and the assistant both want to stay commuter distance from youth gigs. Outside Navy, which will never open and has it's own headaches, there's nothing else worth leaving Howard for (upper end destination, if DC can be called that. yuck, in crappy conference).
