As I was listening to Howard Stern this morning, I was shocked along with everyone else at the way Artie Lange's disagreement over money with his assistant Teddy resulted in a violent explosion on his part and subsequent resignation from the show. As a huge fan of the show, and of Artie in particular--especially after viewing the hi-def nudity in the new, Blu-Ray edition DVD of Beer League!--I'm distressed at the thought of his actually leaving the air. I know all the other fans are with me when I say that the Stern show wouldn't be the same without him, and I sincerely hope he can work out whatever difficulties he's having presently. And most importantly, I hope that he comes back from Amsterdam in one piece and is back on the air after the break!
