Howard's not just cruel......................he's bitch-faggot cruel. He won't mix it up with anybody on a level playing field; he's got to feast on people who are under his thumb and aren't able to fight back.
The only explanation I can think of is that he's obviously still harboring deep wounds and resentments from childhood/adolescence, and the Arties and JDs of this world must "pay" for them.
But when does the shrink arrive at this obvious conclusion?!? When does Howard begin to show a glimmer of improvement in this area?!?
WTF are they talking about?!?
The only way someone gets to be such a bitchy, greedy, creepy faggot is if they enjoy being a bitchy, greedy, creepy faggot. And tragically, I don't think that's going to change in his lifetime. I actually think being this way is his one true joy in life.
You know who Howard is? Percy from "The Green Mile". The geriatric Jew-pelican version, anyway.
