rises a nervous and humble freedom fighter!
Live in the flesh for all to see... Vice Man!!!
a.k.a. Artie Lange.
This proud indigenous native of New Jersey fearlessy exposed the addictions and angst that currently dominate his life.
Perhaps it was the coveted job he holds on satellite radio (currently unregulated by the U.S. Government)
or his friendship with Howard Stern (King of All Media)
that allowed his honesty.
Perhaps it was his Catholic need for confession...
Perhaps it was the impending eclipse of the moon...
In joking about cocaine and heroin he made it clear that they were not funny things.
In dismissing his bookie as a normal guy he established his relationship with organized crime.
In envying Randy Jackson, he showed us how awkward fame feels for him.
He looked unhealthy, uneasy and confident.
He is a perfect metaphor for our nation...
even though he is being more honest about his private life than our government is about our public one.
