The sight of Howard K. Stern makes me sick with rage, kind of like George W. Bush. Howard K. Stern strikes me as a venal sociopath without any redeeming qualities. Every word he says is a lie, including and and the, to paraphrase Mary Mc Carthy speaking of Lillian Hellman.
But I’m wondering how much of my reaction to Stern is based on his nose. That nose is so offensive. It’s unbearable. If he and Larry Birkhead switched noses, I might feel differently. I’ll never know, unless someone is nice enough to photoshop them for me.
