  1. What is your problem with Eddie Capon?? He seems to be a fantastic Director, busy, entertaining, media savvy, plus he is very good with Chinese stuff. Suppose you would replace him with some boring academic /critic and the whole joint would go downhill. Leave the guy alone. Is he retiring? Hope not.
