My Life, My Struggles & Being a Woman in a Man's World

The Podcasts

_ Good advice: Don't insult the boss. And, as Sheen did, don't insult
your boss on radio, with the rest of the media world in wait to report
whatever you say. And especially don't do it if he's a guy like Chuck
Lorre, creator of "Two and a Half Men" (as well as other hit sitcoms,
"The Big Bang Theory" and "Mike & Molly"). And for sure, don't lob
anti-Semitic slurs in the direction of that boss who has bailed you
out of embarrassing scrapes over and over, while publicly defending you.
That's just lousy office politics.

_ Don't continue to brag about your work ethic and your sterling on-time
record for getting to the job- that is, when you're not in rehab, shutting
down your show- no matter how hard you've partied the night before. Showing
up for work is what the boss pays you for, and what the customers
(in Sheen's case, viewers) deserve. It's the least you can do.
Don't expect a bonus for not being tardy.

_ And when the boss pays you a lot (Sheen gets a reported $1.8 million an
episode, the richest payday of any TV star), maybe you should remember that,
at some point, your public might start resenting you for being so rich while
behaving so badly. Ordinary Americans make do on an annual salary- or less- than
Sheen might spend in one night of partying.

_ Don't mistake your own personal machismo (as Sheen did on the radio) for a
macho role you played in a war film, "Platoon," a quarter-century ago. It makes
you sound delusional. Besides, it's best to not mouth off about being a tough
guy when you've already been in hot water for domestic violence.

_ If you can't kick the drugs and the prostitutes, do yourself a favor and
at least get someone to keep you away from your phone and Internet connection.

When you play a character on a TV series, you should always keep in mind that
your bread-and-butter depends on viewers relating to, and liking, that character.
Up to now, Sheen's real-life mischief as a womanizer, substance abuser and overall
hedonist seems to have enhanced the appeal of the character he plays on
"Two and a Half Men," a lovable ladies' man conveniently named Charlie.

But real-life Charlie and TV Charlie seem to be parting company. It's not a
pleasant sight. TV Charlie isn't mean-spirited, hostile or anti-Semitic.
Could growing revelations about real-life Charlie have finally begun to
threaten TV Charlie's likeability?

Maybe viewers, enlightened by Sheen's continuing misbehavior, will
decide that a boozy Lothario isn't so funny after all, and instead
maybe pathetic. Since it seems unclear that Sheen is ready to move on,
wised-up "Two and a Half Men" viewers may be ready.

Crashing the party: Republican strategist turned gay rights
activist ponders a White House run

By Dan Zak
Washington Post Staff Writer

Wednesday, February 2, 2011; 12:31 PM

ON ROUTE 202, N.H. — The candidate can't find his lane. The road is a
crunchy carpet of snow. The candidate drifts too far to the right.
The rumble strip rattles his car. The candidate drifts too far to the left.

"I can't tell where — " he says, squinting into the swirling void.

"We're in the middle of the road," says his research assistant calmly.

The car stereo belts the Act 1 finale from the Broadway
musical "Wicked," which is about the Wicked Witch of the
West and how she chose Evil to get ahead but then chose
Good because that's how all fables end.

The candidate — the man behind the wheel, the man who can't
find his lane — is a guy named Fred. He's exploring the possibility
of running for president of the United States.

He is doing this as an openly gay Republican who's never held
elective office, using money he amassed as a conservative
consultant who helped torpedo Michael Dukakis with the
Willie Horton ads in 1988 and worked for the tobacco industry
to stave off smoking bans in California in the '90s.

Fred Karger, 61, is a nice guy.

He wants his country to see that. He wants young gay people to
see him run for president. He'd be the first-ever openly gay
presidential candidate for a major party if he formally declares.
He can see himself as the moderate voice in a debate crowded with hard-liners.
