I hope she does but I won't celebrate just yet. Stepping down could simply mean she won't be ex. producer anymore. Sony needs to just make a clean sweep, get rid of her and Sheffer too.

Yeah, I hear she likes to get rid of the vets and is another one for making the female characters week and man-dependent. You are probably right to be afraid! :unsure:
