The Paradox Of The Sheen Family Clan

I have noticed two contradictory blog posts concerning the family of Martin Sheen. The blogosphere was humming with the news of Charlie Sheen's rant against the producer of his comedy show and CBS; which was followed by news of his firing by CBS and the suspension of production of said show. OF course, these reports included stories of his out of control behavior. Now, turn 180 degrees and you will find a blog posting in America magazine's website, which reports on a movie written and directed by Emilio Estevez, and staring his and Charlie's father, Martin Sheen. The movie is called The Way, and tells the story of a grieving father's journey on the Camino de Santiago. It is one of the most famous pilgrimage routes in Europe.

It is sad that Charlie Sheen's troubled life is receiving so much public attention, and this uplifting movie by his father and brother is not.
