Howard began this morning reading e-mails, including one about yesterday's installment of "The Jack and Rod Show," where Richard and Sal interviewed an author while constantly playing station jingles over him.
After Howard replayed the clip, he got to another tape, this one of Riley Martin warning a caller on his show not to kill himself because, even though the caller claimed he owned a symbol, he still wouldn't go to "a nice place" when he died.
Howard proceeded to take a call from a listener who was shocked to see Jim "The Psychic Madman" Karol pulling a playing card from Siobhan the Transsexual's "vagina" on Howard TV before reading a number of e-mails continuing to criticize him for leaving Gary's party last Saturday while everyone else was still eating dinner. Howard also read e-mails about Bubba the Love Sponge, who had called in Tuesday to give his thoughts on the dinner controversy, many of which from people who stated they felt he should've kept his feelings to himself.
As Howard was reading the messages, he pointed out how bad some of the grammar in them was, which led him to mention a story about a Staten Island principal who may lose his job because of a letter he sent to students' parents that was full of grammatical errors and misspellings. Howard then read mail from people who wanted him to hire one of yesterday's guests, Gilbert Gottfried, while others praised yesterday's interview with Tobey Maguire.
Ralph then called in to report he saw "Spider-Man 3" for the second time, and that he liked it even more following a repeat viewing. Despite this, though, Ralph added he still would've edited out about 30 minutes of the film and would've had Kirsten Dunst "fix her teeth" for the performance.
Contracts Are Contracts
Following Robin's dismissal of a caller's assertion that she was interested in dating George Lucas, Howard brought up the news that Imus was planning on suing CBS for $40 million over his firing last month.
Howard then noted that, although he wasn't a fan of Imus at all, he was still supporting his suit, explaining that he's had employers violate his contracts in the past.
Howard went on to compare certain radio companies to pirates in the way they broke contracts, and added that he thought it was the job of radio executives to start straightening out the industry.
