Ah, Howie is a softy at heart - as we all know.
Now for the next story, where he helps a little old woman to change a tire, which he espouses he’ll never do.
Good for Howie - karma-baby-karma
Next day, different topic and who calls in but the same man practically in tears. Howie had called someone and fixed the situation. I can't imagine what he said or did but in one day the man's problem was gone. The teachers tearful thanks was something I'd not heard on talk radio before. Howie ended the call professionally acknowledging the thanks but wasn't interested in bringing praise to himself.
Howie may claim he is a callous man but the listeners know better.
