Spc. Brian Tabada will not be a call-in guest on any radio shows…

The U.S. Army says 21-year-old Spc. Brian Tabada of Las Vegas, Nev., died Feb. 27 in Konar province

None of the dead U.S. soldiers above received a glance from the national media. A national media entranced by a celebrity drug-addict that abuses women. A national media that is stumbling over itself to allow Charlie Sheen to spout any type of trivial nonsense he so pleases to an eager citizenry.

None of the dead soldiers above made a sitcom. All these young men did was give their lives for their country. Which makes Sheen's new motto of "winning" seem all the more pathetic. And should make all of us feel as though we are losing our soul.

What is Charlie Sheen saying that's so imporant?
The guys obvisiously on drugs or something, has lost 20 pounds in two months, and looks like shit.
He's having a mental breakdown and the lamestream media is having a field day and you say he's "saying stuff?" Really?

Please Tom, when is it more important to hear about some entertainer with mental problems than it is to hear about the men and women dying overseas in senseless wars?
