Charlie Sheen Says US Gov't. Behind 9/11
The Post’s Page Six reports that Charlie Sheen believes the United States government planned 9/11—literally, not just by running the country that managed to inspire such hatred. Apparently, Sheen is following up his prostitute charity work by narrating a version of the loonier-than-grandma-on-ecstasy YouTube documentary "Loose Change," which claims that a corrupt faction within the federal government orchestrated the World Trade Center terrorist attacks. According to The Post, Sheen is “in talks with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's Magnolia Pictures to distribute the film.” He has also requested a new independent investigation into the attacks, in case, you know, past probes missed the “How To Devastate A Country” manual by the White House.

Kids Who Lost Parent On 9/11 Suffer
A study released yesterday showed that three-quarters of children who lost a parent on 9/11 suffered from psychiatric illnesses after the attacks, including anxiety disorder, posttraumatic stress and depression. Shocking, I know. Researchers at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center monitored 45 kids (average age of nine) who had lost a parent for two years following the attacks. Before 9/11, only one-third of them had mental health problems. They were compared to 34 children who had not lost a parent, and the number of psychiatric problems suffered by the former group more than doubled after the attacks. Findings also revealed that children who lost a parent are 10 times as likely to suffer post-traumatic stress disorder than those who did not.
