Don't Pass the Crazysauce, Please

Hot off his latest rant against CBS, formerly esteemed actor Charlie Sheen announced his tour. Tour!? Hard to believe that someone who has no act would hit the road, but hey, what could be more fun than a live show that follows the progress of a mental breakdown?

The "Charlie Sheen: My Violent Torpedo of Death/Defeat Is Not an Option Show" was announced last week, with an initial two-city line-up. Tickets sold out in mere minutes. Sheen has since expanded his tour to include the concert venue at my fair university. Tickets run about $100. Worse, people (students) are actually willing to pay for this window into man's descent into madness.

I think the name says it all. Sheen is a paranoid delusional. Projections are that Charlie Sheen will make a $7 million profit off his "monologue"-filled tour. Apparently, there are thousands of people out there who are cool with his antics, but I'm not comfortable with supplying him with that much money to support his clear drug habit and bi-polar behavior.

Dude needs help. But he's so filthy rich, he's not going to hit rock bottom for a while... until something tragic happens, no doubt. Hope those $100 tickets are worth it... or you leave feeling like you're winning.

Also, I know this man thinks he has tiger blood pumping through his veins, but what qualifies him as a superhero? What has he done that was remotely close to saving a life? Other than serving as a good example of how to take drugs, act irresponsibly, disrespect your boss, win fans, and make millions of dollars. Thanks as always for being a role model, Charlie.
