"Great moments in marketing -- Charlie Sheen edition"

Even by the lax standards of contemporary journalism, it's hard to see how the meltdown of Charlie Sheen rises above the dog-bites-man standard. He's an actor with a history of drug abuse and manic-depressive (if not bipolar) tendencies -- not an unusual combination -- and his combination of denial and lashing out are absolutely typical for an addict.

I do, however, have to admit that the speed of development here is impressive. Back when I was doing marketing modelling, it took us forever to roll out a new product.
