    I said it on SFN and I will say it here. Artie was living at least 5 stages higher in life than he should have been. Hence the reason he is a miserable fuck.

    I haven't read the article (it's late and I'm out of time) but a couple observations;

    1. Artie has a self destructive personality. Inside he believes he doesn't deserve what he has. It's not that I know Artie its just that I know Artie. Something inside you says something bad is going to happen to you so you begin to make something bad happen to you.

    2. Money is devalued. When you make that much money you take it for granted. It's not as important as it once was and your life and habits begin to supersede what's afforded you that lifestyle to begin with.

    Artie was the reason I started paying to hear Howie again. Never really missed hearing him. No surprise the show went downhill once he left. Oh well.

    Jackie was the whole fucking writing team. And in retrospect the only writing team worth a damn Stern ever had . . .

    $800/k to work 2-3 days a week, 40 weeks a year. And play to bigger rooms. What a fuckin' idiot. At least Jackie was approaching 60 when he fucked up.

    People cant grasp that Jackie was primarily a comedy writer for the show where Artie was really just a another voice on Mic.

    Really? Fred always claims he's not a millionaire. Why would he lie about his riches?

    Fred baffles me. Even if he were just a working stiff, he has worked for the same "company" for 30 years. And he's worked in NYC for the bulk of that time. I would expect him to bring home 120-150K per year as a nobody with that kind of tenure.
