    I say it's fear. It's not Beth. It's not money. It's not the Hamptoms. It's simply fear. His riddled with it. His fear grew out of when Hank died and Elliot Offen killed someone, and smashed the wall, and Cabby was talking to his TV and went to prison, Kenneth Kieth died in jail etc. It culminated with Artie's suicide attempt. The suicide attempt put the fear of God into him. He is paralyzed to do try and do anything funny anymore, including hiring a new comedian for the studio. Talking to himself and Robin parroting him and giggling like an idiot is the most he can cope with at the moment. He's ascared. :shakey:

    Fear of one's own mortality. That, or he's pussy-whipped. o_O

    Well exactly. He's always said he's been raised as a veal. But besides that, he's had the chance to see people who he thought were "wacky" just go nuclear right at his feet. The reason the show sucks is that interesting moments in life are dangerous.

    We can analyze it and live for the glory days all we want but it's time to throw a shovelful of dirt on him and move on

    Pretty much every problem you have comes down to fear. It's a pretty old AA concept. When someone comes to me with a problem, eventually we always get to the bottom of things when I say "So what is it you are afraid of"

    Stern was always a greedy lazy liar.
    The internet did him in.

    What's wrong with Howard? The answer is simple, once he signed his second Sirius contract, he wasn't happy with it, and stopped giving a shit about his radio show

    It is narcissism. Howard cannot be out of the public eye. He cannot be without people kissing his ass all the time. He knows his radio career is winding down and he is trying to become mainstream so he can stay in the public eye in another capacity and people will kiss his ass.

    I don't think it is fear at all. Hank died a decade ago. I think Howard takes zero responsibility for anything that has happened. I don't even think he takes any responsibility for looking the other way while Artie spiraled down the drain on the air.

    The only thing Howard fears is that the social elite in Hollywood and the Hamptons will shun him at parties. I take the whole fear thing back. This scares the wholly living piss out of him.

    I didn't say he cared about them. But for his amusement they imploded. He can't bring in any new interesting people because he's afraid they will too. Hit's very close to home for him.
    BTW, I don't see it as a Libtard issue or political or whatever it is you're trying to say with that comment.
