Funny, but at the time my intuition had already told me that Bob Arthur was fired. Now the story of Bob's "retirement" only corroborates it ("Arthur Claims He Was Fired by KABC," Calendar, Oct. 4).
I'm not surprised if Ken Minyard "orchestrated it," as reported. The show was more lively, charming and warm with Arthur. Certainly more pleasant than with those young whippersnappers on now. I, for one, miss Arthur's warmth and lack of goofiness.
