Just curious, but has any staffer ever made it big? I mean made a career that's paid out? The only one I can think of is stuttering john, but he only made it because he had the balls to tell Howard to fuck off... seems to me that the reward for anyone that stays loyal to Howard is poverty and irrelevance. Look at the sheer volume of ex employees and wack packers that Howard won't even acknowledge exists any longer. moral of the story: if you wat to turn your career into profit, you need I tell Howard to fuck off and do it yourself.
