I don't listen to the show anymore so I don't know if he ever actually mentioned it. I don't remember seeing it on here, that he addressed it, either. I have to say, if he didn't, he's a bigger scum-sucking piece of shit asshole than I ever thought. I mean what kind of a person does that. Sam was a part of the Stern Universe. He was on air lots of times, and even let Howard's boyfriend stay with him whenever he was in CA. He was considered a friend of the show. How the fuck could Howard not have ever mentioned it. If for any other reason, just to do it out of respect.
