You know what? They don't. One, two, maybe three chances, even. Sure. Twenty-four? Fuck you. It's not just the drug and alcohol abuse: Everyone gets a free pass for that. It's that Charlie Sheen beats women. Hell, he once shot Kelly Preston in the arm. He apparently locked a prostitute in a closet. He's been convicted of assault. Social services took his children away from him. How do we reward that behavior? Here's $10 million and a new TV Show. Good luck, we're really pulling for you, Charlie!

And you know what? That show is going to rake in the ratings. Because that's the kind of fucked-up culture we live in. We LOVE an underdog, even if it's a woman-beating, drug-using, deadbeat motherfucking asshole who already has $200 million in the bank. He's like the next coming of Rudy only he's a horrible goddamn human being.
