There is nothing like the New York Post


Yahoo had a link to a New York Post story on Charlie Sheen’s latest mishap.  It seems the sometimes actor, sometimes public menace, sometimes witness in trials against call girls, went whackadoodle in his hotel room at the Plaza on a recent visit to the Big Apple.

The Post deftly writes about the drugs, broken glass, frightened women, baffled police, and the disoriented star of Two and a Half Men.  They paint a frightening picture. Here’s an example of what I’m talking about:

The “Two and a Half Men” star was so loaded that cops had to button his shirt for him after telling him to get dressed. He told police that he had been out drinking and doing cocaine earlier before ending up in his suite with the hooker, sources said.

The horrifying event took place in a room across the hall from Sheen’s to young daughters, and this is where the Post jumps from a story about violence and drug abuse, to a bizarre plug for the Plaza.  Here’s what they wrote about the kid’s room:

The couple’s daughters, Sam, 6, and Lola, 5, were left with a nanny in the Eloise Suite, named after the famous fictional girl whose life residing at the tony hotel is chronicled in a popular series of children’s books.
What?  Did we really need to know A.) the name of the room they were staying in and B.) the reason behind the name of the room they were staying in?  It’s almost as if their editor said, “I need 39 more words.”  And this is the best they could come up with.
I’ve got to go now because there’s been an Earthquake.  Six million people in my neighborhood are dead and zombies are eating all the cats.  Fortunately my cat Oz, named after the main character in a series of horror novels for young adults called The Oz Chronicles, is adroit at killing zombies.
