15 minutes before Tuesday's Sheen's Korner, the audio feed came on. It sounded like static at first -- but thanks to my #ROCKSTAR low-noise audio setup, you can clearly hear Sheen rehearsing with his crew and Teleprompter! Near the end you'll also hear some last-minute editing as he decides how to skewer producer Chuck Lorre without sounding anti-Semitic.

Infamous "citizen journalist" James O'Keefe secretly recorded a video of an NPR fund raiser talking smack about Tea Party Republicans. Is this a big "gotcha"?

Dave Ross Commentary - Listen: Sheen to Producers -- You're turds
The letter to Charlie Sheen's lawyer begins as follows:
"At the outset, let us state the obvious: Your client has been engaged in dangerously self destructive conduct and appears to be very ill."
It then goes on for 21 pages -- WITH FOOTNOTES -- with a ten-page list of links to media coverage, and everything the producers did to try to save the show:
It notes that after Sheen's three-day bender in Las Vegas, he was seen drinking the same day he was scheduled to begin rehearsing. He was late that day, missed the next day entirely, and was late the following two days.
It says out takes of Two and a half men show him forgetting lines and missing his marks and having to lean on the furniture.
The letter states that both the President of Warner Bros. Television, and the head of CBS went to his home, said they were shutting down production until he finished rehab, and they had a private plane ready to fly him there. But he wouldn't go, declaring he had self healed by blinking, and instead began giving interviews without permission:
"I am on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen."
And so he's fired. And they are not going to pay him for the rest of the season, and in fact will seek damages.
"They're on a battle field and they let their emotions and their ego, basically they strapped on their diapers," said Sheen.
We'll see whose diaper gets wetter. Donald Trump says Sheen will make more money than ever. I hope so because he'll need it. The letterhead of the law firm that sent the termination letter -- lists 193 lawyers.

The New York Times used polling and demographic data to put together a profile of the happiest person in America. According to their research, the person would be a tall, male, Asian-American Jew living in Hawaii who's married with children, over 65 years old, owns his own business, and makes more than $120,000 a year. Turns out, that describes a fellow named Alvin Wong, and he joined Dave and Luke on the show today.

Planes were delayed and tempers were flaring at the Buenos Aires airport last week when '80s pop icon Cyndi Lauper jumped in to save the day. She grabbed an airport intercom microphone and started singing her hit song "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." The crowd joined her in the chorus and the mood lightened. Well played, Ms. Lauper.
