Charlie Sheen Fired

Charlie Sheen does the Sunday ComicsImage by susie.c via Flickr
So the 'news' is that Charlie Sheen has been fired from his job on Two and a Half Men.  Anybody else would have been fired ages ago with all the trouble he's been getting into, but celebrities get away with all kinds of shenanigans, don't they?  Why do we put up with these people, and even look up to them?

Being in the public eye should come with responsibility, not  the 'right' to do anything they want to do, right or wrong.  I'm thinking that most of us, if we knew we were constantly being watched, would be on our best behavior.  Even most hard-working Americans in not-so-visible columbus jobs, manufacturing jobs, or any other jobs in the heartland are on better behavior than many celebrities.

Yes, there are some good people who are also celebrities, who use their influence for good and don't get into trouble all the time.  The others should be fired, like Charlie.
