For Christ sakes, the Sterns wouldn't even help out with a couple of cats that were picked up from NSAL. HPE begged for them to help his cats after he was evicted. They preferred not to get involved, instead they let HPE face cruelty charges.
Oh, please, not only that, Howard wouldn't even race to have his family stay with him when Hurricane Sandy knocked out their heat and hot water until DAYS later. He couldn't give a fuck.
