    The show is on vacation this week, so they’re playing a radio documentary Stern and his team did on his life and career, “The History of Howard Stern, Part 2.”  It may not be compelling to anyone but diehard fans, but it should be. 

    There’s a lot of universal insight and... read on

    The new head of the FCC is a smart Jewish boy.

    So last night I broke the news to my family that I was writing a Howard Stern blog. My wife looked at me with a mix of pity, patience and dismay—it was the look you give a ten year-old caught with a Penthouse at school. It’s not like he hurt anybody, but still, could... read on
