I am probably the only one who could care less about Charlie Sheen. I think its all for publicity and a bit rediculous. It's been going on for way too long for it to still be news. In a lot of ways I think that celebrities get way too much written about them, and sites like Twitter have only made it worse. I mean seriously, I don't care what the hell Paris Hilton is doing every second of her life. I think people get to wrapped up in following each and every celebrity and don't realize that it's generally not real life. It's kind of like pictures in magazines, there isn't one picture that isn't airbrushed and "fixed", making the general public believe something that isn't true.
But this whole Charlie Sheen thing has really gone over the edge. Kind of like Lindsey Lohan. Who cares, they are nuts and have too much money and thing everything is owed to them. I'm not going to act like I don't read People or watch the occasional Entertainment Tonight, but generally, I could care less. Another one, Sarah Palin! (I won't get into politics, but what has she said that's worth anything recently).
It really struck my attention when I read this on someones Facebook status the other day:
"Charlie Sheen is all over the news because he's a celebrity drug addict while Andrew Wilfahrt 31, Brian Tabada 21, Rudolph Hizon 22, Chauncy Mays 25, are soldiers who gave their lives this week with no media mention. Please honor them by posting this as your status for a little while"
It is really amazing though, isn't it? We never hear about these people who are fighting and losing their lives for this country and yet every piece of new information is covering Charlie Sheen. Puts things in perspective a little bit and now American's can get caught up in everything that isn't important and not look at what is really going on in the world.
Just a little thought for the day. A great article was written on CNN today about this same thing.. Here's the LINK
