#Tigerblood #Winning #PublicNervousBreakdown

Whether you think the whole Charlie Sheen thing is a delightful bit of comedic gawking or whether you think it’s a depressing spectacle as the world laughs at someone’s mental problems, you should probably know that Charlie Sheen is on Twitter. Yep. It’s a verified account and everything. So it’s him. It launched yesterday and as I started typing this item, he had 773,027 followers. There are a few tweets: “My sons’ are fine… My path is now clear… Defeat is not an option..!”, “Questions..? I’m here for my people..! Bring it!! #Tigerblood”
Now as I finish typing this item (and I’m a fast typist and fast writer), he has 776,028 followers.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
