The Cleveland commentator Dick Feagler has made the
complaint against Howard Stern that, "If I said what he said, I
would be fired."
Feagler misses the point that Howard Stern would likewise be
fired if he talked like Dick Feagler. How big would Howard

they can make a million dollars off of something I wrote, without cutting ME in for "A Piece of the Action."
