NPR Monkey See: Paying a Penny at Bedlam

On last night's Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, the host explained that he wasn't going to be doing any more Charlie Sheen jokes. He's done them, he acknowledged, but he's not doing them anymore. And he explained why.

This post, by the ineffable Linda Holmes, says exactly what I've been thinking for the last day or so, but she expressed it much more clearly.

Bravo to Craig Ferguson for walking away from the mess, and shame on all those other networks for exploiting a man's illness.

And no, I'm not much of a Charlie Sheen fan, but whether it's "just" drug addiction, or something more like manic-depression, he's clearly in need of help, and nothing about those interviews is going to provide it.
