    Resign? He is far too important (in his own eyes)for that...after all he had hundreds of reporters standing around for 8 hrs waiting for any little crumb he might drop. When you can do that you still have some legitimacy left.

    i think james arthur ray thinks he is some sort of a magical something-or-other and that he can get away with anything

    I agree with Devona and Nina's remark, sad classic case of bi-polar likely from the Cocaine robbing his body of massive amounts of neuro-transmitters which are not being adequately replaced in his brain chemistry and poor nutrition on those amino-acids.

    I wish there was a clear solution to the problems in Libya.

    Good Night Anderson Cooper and everyone else

    Excellent program tonight. I feel it is very important that the eyes of the world continues to watch Libya and other countries whose people are struggling for freedoms, rights, and the human condition!

    Yes an apology, but I think there's still a layer of chocolate pudding-like oil on the sea floor.

    Oil companies are really going to be pushing for drilling for new wells instead of looking for other forms of car propellants – natural gas works. BP may be lining their nest for the future.

    @Jo Ann, Ohio: I agree. 'Yes' people tend to do that, unfortunately.

    I hear you, Lisa...Sheen is just given so much attention for this trip he's on.

    Sheen is a self-serving byline – Libya is the story . . .

    Who is crazier? Charlie Sheen or Ghadafi? You be the judge.

    Charlie Sheen's behavior truly reminds me of homeless people I've encountered

    March 8, 2011 at 10:56 pm |
  24. Karen, MN

    I love Dr. Drew. He just touch on the addict. Everyone else around him is a co-dependent. I wish Charlie well. His children need him!

    Actually, after all the depressing news lately, I'd love nothing more than to move to Alaska, away from crowds and breathing in some fresh, fresh, fresh air...:)

    Charlie Sheen is a classic case of bi-polar, highs and lows, mania. He probably has not slept or eaten in days. Normally someone close to him would of had him committed for this illness by now. In this case money is working against him.

    March 8, 2011 at 10:55 pm |
  27. Smith in Oregon

    I agree with Dr. Drew on how difficult this is with a celebrity who has mass amounts of money and sycophants that cheer their excess's on until they drop like a rock.

    March 8, 2011 at 10:54 pm |
  28. Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

    I agree all of you, Charlie was fired by CBS last night, he is so crazy person I have seen him lately..... He had drug and alcohol problem long year since.

    March 8, 2011 at 10:54 pm |
  29. Heather - Spokane, WA

    The reason why Sheen hasn't recieved help is because he is surrounded by 'yes people' who do not want to lose the 'perks' of being friends with him

    March 8, 2011 at 10:54 pm |
  30. Randy

    Keep up the great work that you are doing Anderson – do not let these freedom seeking Libyan people die in vain!

  31. Jo Ann, Ohio

    Celebrities have too many "yes" people around them. That is why they crash and burn so often.

    March 8, 2011 at 10:53 pm |
  32. Emily

    Is he not TOO far gone for treatment now?

    March 8, 2011 at 10:53 pm |
  33. Sue R. Canton MI.

    I hope that Charlie Sheen gets the help that he so badly needs. He's sick and I think the people surrounding him are helping him play along with the media circus that has surrounded his life right now.

  34. Cessy - Chicago

    this is not show. I think this is real and I hope that someone from his family intervene...it's going to get really worse for him. we see this all the time @ work.

    How can those people in the room with him support his behavior?

  37. lisal -canada

    well i've been trying to avoid incidents of even WATCHING the charlie sheen saga – i really feel like it is being shoved down people's throats – i mean i guess a lot of people find it ... ?interesting ... but i guess it is everywhere – even 360 is covering it. sigh.

    @Kelly, PA
    "Who released this?"
    Sheen did. He had his own TV bit on the web.
