It Stopped Being Funny

The late night talk show hosts have been putting the screws to Charlie Sheen night after night lately. Because of Sheen's drunken escapades, everything gets turned into a Charlie Sheen joke. I must admit; I've told a couple myself. I heard Leno use the horrible situation in Libya as a set-up for a Sheen punchline. However, Sheen's latest drunken rant, on the radio no less, with its verbal cruelty towards the people Sheen works for --to the tune of over a million bucks an episode-- has shown what we are really dealing with here. Not a 'party' boy or a 'bad' boy. This man is a full-out alcoholic in mid-crisis. Charlie Sheen is crashing and burning right now, and even though he could buy and sell me, I feel bad for the guy. No more Sheen jokes on the graveyard shift at The Eagle, he isn't funny anymore. Indeed, a man with the talent shown in WALL STREET and PLATOON tossing his career and his life away is very sad. I'm going to say a prayer for the guy, that he finds sobriety before he kills himself, and just move on. - Jobe
