I figure unless you live in a cave in the depths of a mountainous region, relatively unvisited, you obviously have heard, seen, read about all of Charlie’s exploits.  It is virtually impossible not to.  I have not searched out any information about him, haven’t picked up an article specifically to read about him and yet, I probably could pass a test all about him!!  I loved Two and a Half Men from the day it came on the scene and still, juvenile as it can be, like it.  Makes me laugh much of the time.

I cannot help thinking, though, that while Charlie has obviously fried his brains over the years - and only he knows the extent of that - I personally think he is crazy...........like a fox.  A very sly fox.  If I were in a position to bet money, I would put it on him, he is going to come out of this smelling like a rose and probably will get most everything he is looking for.

Got an email yesterday from Sirius Radio (I have a subscription for my car), inviting me to listen to a new station.........Tiger Blood Radio, about, who else--Charlie Sheen.  PUH-Leese.  I really can think of better ways to spend my time. 

And that brings me to the point of my rambling--most of you are too young to remember or know anything about a movie from the late 60’s called “Easy Rider.” Was my favorite back then, loved the song track (”...don’t bogart that joint my friend...") and the movie.  If you are too young, google the movie and you will see what I am getting at.  Now, you cannot tell me Jack Nicholson, Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda were choir boys.  In fact, if the things we heard then--and more recently, on a graveyard tour in N’Orleans--were true, then they might make Charlie look like an amateur!! 

The only difference I can see between then and now is we did not have the ability to hear about things happening the second they did, there was no such thing as the internet, cells phones--forget that, TV was so limited--so if you heard any stories, most likely it was because you knew people who were there.  We had friends involved in the industry back then, my best friend was living in Santa Monica and so yeah, we heard stories.  But nothing like the way we get information today.  So for those who are getting all bent over this and tsk tsking about his behavior, he really isn’t doing anything that hasn’t been done--and maybe better, who knows.  The media, entertainment media and the ones who call themselves newscasters(??) have latched onto this and feel this need to blast the airwaves with updates every 10 minutes or so.  Heck, a show that I always thought was pretty reputable spent an entire hour the other day rehashing everything he has said and done.  Get. Over. It. !!  I am just grateful he is not my son, my brother, my nephew; other than that, I intend to sit back and just wait to see who wins.  As I said before, my money is on Charlie!!

And now the sun really is out and maybe it will jump up to 60 the way they have promised all day, so I am heading outside!!
