Howie has a lot of faithful listeners up here in Maine.  I think his
complaints about Boston reinforce the loathing a lot of Mainers have for the
place. (I personally don't happen to be among them, having been raised near
there, but I gotta admit --- life in The Hub, as Howie tells it, is
certainly fodder for a few good yuks on occasion.)
