    Can anyone confirm Hank has no headstone at his final resting place? I would assume he has one but if not funds need to be collected for some rock.

    Hank has no headstone at the request of his mother who's excuse at the time was she didn't want fan's trampling the grave site. IMO she would not take anything from Stern as she blamed Hanks' early death on Howard's show. She hated Stern and the show because of the lifestyle it made possible for Hank and she very well could be right :dontknow: Howard and Robin spoke about it on air, that's how I knew the fans under foot story. Having worked down in the sister city to where Hank lived I know these old school Lebanese families. The kids run wild while the older generation blames those that enable them, not the kids themselves.

    In all fairness, I don't think it's fair to judge Howard for Hank's alcoholism that harshly. It was Hank's choice at the end of the day, and I know my life is hard enough without being a dwarf, so I don't blame Hank either. Not everybody gets to be Peter Dinklage...

    in defense of howard, hank was a hardcore drunk when he showed up in the first place. i really think hank's death was hastened a little, but he would have gone out the way he did anyway, without howard's help.

    Dinklage is so the exception. Howard's attention gave Hank some relief without his resorting to anything stronger than alcohol. It's not as if he would have stopped drinking if Howard ignored him: everything else contributed to his alcoholism. Howard just noticed him.

    Oh I don't. At the end of the day he was an alcoholic, plain and simple. What I meant was if Howard's machine hadn't taken Hank under it's wing he may have not had the money to be able to drink himself to death as quickly as he did. Hank would have died of a complication to drinking if he didn't stop, it just might have taken years longer to happen without the show.

    i don't think any alcoholic ever went sober because of a lack of funds. They just drink cheaper and crappier forms of alcohol. During the depression they drank Sterno ("squeeze") because it was about as cheap as they could get.

    This. I've been through horrible drinking periods when I was barely holding a job in my 20's and I just bought the cheapest shit I could find, which with booze, like anything else, you get what you pay for. You pay $70+ for a bottle of Patron to experience a smooth drunk and a mild/tolerable hangover as opposed to $15 Del Oro Tequila which is like drinking a horrible hangover. Hank was fucked from the womb.

    I'm from Hank's hometown. Hank's family is pretty well to do. They wouldn't need HowWig's money if they wanted a headstone. The family hates Howard.
