Obligatory Charlie Sheen Moment
We've all heard the news about Carlos Irwin Estevez (his real name), how he's going on a bender with drugs and hookers and what-not, to the point where his children have been taken from him, to the custody of their mother, and to where his father, actor Martin Sheen, is contemplating an intervention. Or something. He's got one thing going for him; he's getting more compassion than Mel Gibson for bad behavior, and Mel didn't appear to escape the consequences nearly as much.

Sheen nicely reminds us that we alone are responsible for our behaviour, and that we alone can improve ourselves, when we’re ready.
He's not ready. Film at 11. Discuss.
