Imagine for a moment that Howard was confident enough in his talent and masculinity to never slap a wig (or "hair system" if you prefer) on that ugly head of his. How do you think his career would have been impacted if he had let the world witness his hair thinning over the years? Would he have remained relevent in the post-Private Part years with thinning hair or a bald spot? Would he have been offered half a billion dollars to move to Sirius? Assuming he is pretty much bald on top now, do you think there's a chance in hell he'd be on a network show?
