    The good thing is that Artie has beaten his personal demons and is doing well for now. No thanks to that hooked nosed Jew.

    Howard might not have supplied the drugs but he was glad Artie was doing them. It gave him much content for the radio. Howard was an enabler.

    What? Howard had no idea that Artie was doing drugs or was in need of any kind of help.

    i had an obvious drug problem at work a few years ago. my boss pulled me aside and said "look, you're sick. you need to get some help." he gave me a good reference and i agreed to be on my way. that was the wake up call i needed. he could easily have been a cunt and fired me and not given me a reference, but he didn't. luckily i wasn't in a job where he could videotape me to get more viewers and make more money.

    it's beautiful but heartbreaking....it's difficult not to cry.

    i truly hope artie is conquering his demons and going to meetings.....it's the only way to maintain longterm sobriety.

    I know you are being sarcastic but there are still those that believe Howie's being truthful about that. Even assuming Howard is so self consumed that he didn't see anything unusual about an employee falling asleep on the job one day and manically talking the next he was informed at least three times of Artie's drug use prior to Artie's final days on the show.

    1. After returning from Afghanistan Booey told stories about Artie's strange drugged out behavior during the trip which he later made into a chapter for his paperback. Booey certainly would have discussed this with Howard before using it as show and book material.

    2. Artie himself stated he almost died from mixing subutex and drugs prior to the Saget roast, that statement alone would have caused most employers let alone "bro's" to intervene in the situation

    3. Robin recently said to Howard that she "told Howard that Artie had a problem", Howard cut her off and changed the subject.

    Howard just thought Artie's problem was too much Hawaiin Punch and cupcakes.

    I love Artie and I'm so glad that he's doing well, but the last month or so of his show has been painful. He's starting to make Shuli look reverent.

    Artie needs some Ayahuasca to open up his mind, cure his addictions and bring hi into the 9th dimension. He's becoming the epitome of a hack. Plus he's a fake Italian.

    Howard played him for time filler and profit. And every time he denies it, he's a goddamn liar.
    End of story.

    Pretty sure Howard told him to go get help many times. Artie didn't want to give up the fame, money and plugs. Howard even hooked him up with a shrink that Artie spit back in his face months later.

    I do believe that Howard wanted Artie to be healthy. Think about it people, Artie was taking a real load off of Howard work wise, and Howard is smart enough to know that his professional life would be easier/better with Artie by his side. I really think that Artie was out of control, and Howard could not do anything to stop it. Truthfully, we do not know what Howard did behind the scene to help Artie. I can speculate that it wasn't much, but it is nothing more than speculation because I do not have that intimate knowledge. Why didn't someone else try to help Artie, like his Mom, Sister, Girlfriend, Booey, Fred, Robin, his buddy Deej, some FUCKING BODY?! Maybe they did try and we just are not privy to the facts.
