So, if you haven't been living under a rock, you know that "Two and a Half Men" actor Charlie Sheen has gone completely and utterly insane. It started with the basic TV star breakdown - a wild, coke-fueled party with porn stars. Who hasn't done that? 

He started doing rehab at his home and it seemed like maybe he would get his act together or something. But then came the anti-Semitic swipe at showrunner Chuck Lorre and the subsequent media interviews that became more and...

So, if you haven't been living under a rock, you know that "Two and a Half Men" actor Charlie Sheen has gone completely and utterly insane. It started with the basic TV star breakdown - a wild, coke-fueled party with porn stars. Who hasn't done that? 

He started doing rehab at his home and it seemed like maybe he would get his act together or something. But then came the anti-Semitic swipe at showrunner Chuck Lorre and the subsequent media interviews that became more and more incoherent as he slowly descended into pure, unadulterated bat-poo craziness. He started living with his pair of porn star girlfriends (one of whom is a northeast Indiana girl). Tuesday, the police took away his kids after his estranged wife, Brooke Mueller, filed a restraining order against him. (Good plan, Brooke, dear.)

On one hand, I pity Sheen for his obvious problems and wish that us media vultures would just leave him alone to either get clean or become a bum living under a bridge in Los Angeles. On the other hand, Sheen's meltdown is fascinating - more fascinating than most, in fact. It's sad, of course, to see a fellow human being having so much trouble in his life. I wouldn't be at all surprised to wake up tomorrow morning to find out that he either overdosed or shot himself in the head.

On the other hand, it has been a week of interesting quotes that I can't help but enjoy in some sick way. Who says things like, "I'm tired of pretending I'm not a totally bitchin' rock star from Mars?" Only Charlie Sheen.

I'm not going to spend too many words on Sheen, other than to say that I hope he gets help. Apparently he got some words of support from Mel Gibson, but he shouldn't be listening to another psycho like Gibson. If he can lay off the crazy for a while and step out of the spotlight, he still has a chance for a Robert Downey Jr.-esque comeback in a few years. I hope it happens. He's not the best actor ever, but I've enjoyed him in movies before and I'd like to see him do well again.

Meanwhile, enjoy these two sites that have popped up to profit off Sheen's descent into madness: Sheen Family Circus and Charlie Sheen Quotes as New Yorker Cartoons. If you're going to get a laugh out of someone else's problems, at least make it a hearty laugh.
