I am not a fan of Leno's at all, but I give him credit for taking the cut. I think it's a stellar thing to do, and it affects more than TV. The economy strikes everywhere. I know when NASCAR was making severe cuts two years ago, Jeff Gordon was among the first drivers to step up and cut their pay so that the team members could retain their jobs. Gordon's a class act and a leader. Others followed suit.
