ANOTHER show?! This guy has had more Hollywood lives than a freaking cat! Then again, what do you expect from a guy who is addicted to winning? His breakdown was fun to watch, and after seeing it it's easy to forget Sheen was once in lockstep with Tom Cruise to be the next great movie star. Platoon, Wall Street, Major League, he would have risen to much greater heights had he kept back from the drugs … more
Poor, poor Charlie Sheen. What the heck happened this week? And why can't we stop watching? As a fan of his works, especially his now-on-hiatus hit comedy Two & A Half Men, as well as part of the amused when it comes to his antics (don't lie, you know you've been following up on it, too!), and just as a fellow human being in general, I can't … more

JetBlue Airways says that there will be no second exits for famed flight attendant Steven Slater— who captured the nation's imagination with his profanity-laced loudspeaker tirade and jump down a plane's emergency chute, beer in hand.

First, I have never played golf in my life! Second, I am a retired army officer, an adjunct professor in history and have studied philosophy in graduate school. So, why am I weighing in on Tiger Woods. Throughout my life I have become disappointed in observing in American society how many young people have idolized professionals in the sports and entertainment fields. Kids … more
Steven Slater is a loser. As the story develops there are no passengers that can confirm his side of the story, that he was hit in the head by baggage in the overhead storage, or that a passenger was verbally abusive to him. Basically, he went "postal" without the gun! A reason for this behavior has not been given as of yet. What really "burns" … more
If you've ever dreamt of giving upper management and your clients the ultimate f-you and causing a major stir as you quit, well then, one brazen man lived out many people's wildest fantasies earlier this week when he walked out on his job in the most dramatic, yet surprisingly seamless, fashion possible. If you didn't already hear, 38-year-old [now-former] JetBlue flight attendant … more

I can't see why everyone is so enamored with this guy. Basically, he got tired of dealing with some of the annoying passengers on his flights and decided to quit in a colorful way. He did something quite dangerous, activating and going down the emergency slide. As the airport went into emergency mode to investigate, this was the equivilent of turning in a false fire alarm. … more
Is there anyone out there like me that wishes this story would go away like the Octomom, Miss California and the White House gate crashers tales. This is getting way too much coverage. I guess the news outlets feel the general public is becoming extremely bored about the debates still raging on Healthcare and Afganistan. What is it that makes the general … more
It is difficult to give this data point a rating. It is an issue between a man and his wife and nobody else’s business. Who is Tiger Woods? The man is arguably one of the greatest golf players of all time. News of his infidelity have reached widespread coverage because of his fame. So does this make him any less of a human being? Well, it all depends on how you look at it…. … more
Wow, 2009 has been one heck of the year in pop culture what with all the celebrity deaths (R.I.P. Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, DJ AM, Jim Carroll and Patrick Swayze) and high profile public outbursts (hello, Joe Wilson, Serena Williams and Kanye West). Little did I know, though, that one of the folks in the latter would spawn yet another -gate this year, inadvertantly creating one of … more
