    Via Facebook: Of course, today his “winning” had the added element of getting FIRED from his TV show. I haven’t even been following the story very closely (except for the firing story today) and it’s pretty obvious the man is quite out of control. I hope somebody intercepts him good and proper before he does something that seriously hurts himself or someone else.

    In a less public way, many families have to go through this year after year.. They know their loved ones desperately need help but cannot do anything because it will infringe on that person’s human rights. When one is in the state Charlie is in, there is no insight but it is often the families who have to scrape up the mess afterwards. Not even the doctors will help families, citing “privacy laws”, but it wouldn’t hurt them to give families some help in trying to support and care for a hypothetical person in exactly the same condition. The media and followers will not be there when Charlie hits his depressive state – he’ll only become a “sensation” again when he pulls the trigger.
