In the Headlines

I loath to blog about such a topic. But it seems that everyone else is, so I might as well too.  Am I the only person in this blessed country who doesn't give a rat's rear about Charlie Sheen? He is an absolute embarrassment to humanity and it's s shame to have to admit we belong to the same species.  But it seems that no matter how hard I try I can't get away from his name.

  • I read the news, he's there. I visited my favorite blog today and even they did a blog about his idiocy.
  • My niece and I were watching Hook this afternoon. When Rufio came on screen she asked me what else he's in. When I told her he was in The Mighty Ducks, I remembered "Ducks"  also stars Emilio Estevez, who is the brother of said lunatic. 
  • Then, at work tonight, someone turned the TV in the waiting room to a Two and a Half Men marathon. [And for the record, I think that is the absolute lamest show on TV and the fact that it is so popular does not improve my opinion of general society. Every time a scene changes that stupid "Meeeeennnnnn" chorus? It's maddening.]
  • Anyway, as soon as the waiting room was clear I changed the channel. I picked out a basketball game. That should be safe, right? Nope. At the end of the Jazz getting trounced by the Nuggets, the commentators started talking about our good friend, comparing him to Charles Barkley. Sigh... When even the sports networks aren't safe?
I just hope whatever phase this is that he is going through ends quickly. He must have a very low self esteem and no sense of self worth. I've often wished for fame and fortune, but it seems as though even all that can't make a person happy. Now he's just become an enabled slime ball with no morals or social skills.

Um, I thought House of Nash was your favorite blog. Hmmph! j/k. I totally agree with you on this post.

I didn't know they were brothers.

Amen! Although I did love the "Late Night" spoof with Donny Osmond on "Two and a half Men"
