    Its been said that everyone wants money, wealth and fame. As a long time Stern fan and listener (maybe could be classified as former, still not 100% sure) has there ever been a distinct example of what money, wealth and fame can do to a person (s). Look at Baba Booey, Robin, even Artie and see what wealth does to a person. My belief is that once you don't have to worry about the normal things in life like bills, car payments and mortgages you lose perspective on what is most important in life. Maybe you become bored and have too much time on your hands. Thus the need for fulfillment beyond making life comfortable. See Robin's incessant changes in life style and hobbies. This applies to Howard as well. And of course you can look at Artie and outside the stern world at celebrities who fall into drug abuse, etc.

    Not saying that I would ever turn down the m,w & f, but as an outsider looking in at the self destruction this seems to bring, you have to wonder how would a normal person handle the situation.

    Please don't make a mockery of this.

    Another problem is that people with money are surrounded with "yes men". They live in a totally different reality with zero clue how real life is.

    But Howard have a sickness. The marble sickness that is in his genes. He believes that most money that dies wins a price.

    I think it is hilarious when rich celebrities tell everyone how to vote and how they should think. Assholes should shut their pie holes.
