Someone Please Explain...
Charlie Sheen earns eight million dollars per episode, and he has the audacity to be suing the network to collect money on the eight episodes they canceled. Our military men and woman earn PEANUTS compared to the half hour sitcom in which Sheen stars, and their deaths don't even warrant mention on the nightly news.
Athletes argue that they are paid big money because the length of their contracts is limited by the longevity of their abilities. I pretty much think those in the military have a much less predicted longevity but we don't seem to remember to credit their achievements and sacrifices in the media. Do we only care about the rich and famous? If so, why? I imagine if we had sacrificed a son or daughter to the war, we might view things a whole lot differently. Aren't these all our sons and daughters????
