"To err is human, to arr is a pirate"
Sounds like Sharon has grown UP!

Sharon and Ozzy have been through a lot over the years and still managed to stay together. Sharon has never struck me as such a patient person, but I guess that's what love does to you. I have mixed feelings about that situation. Yes, he has relapsed again and of course treats his family like crap, how much more can she put up with? On the other hand, 31 years is a long time and that would be hard to let go. When someone has been your personal project, to fix and protect how does one just say $%^$ it, I'm done. I'm sure she will still manage him so they won't really have space to get over each other. It's just sad. If they do split, I predict that Ozzy won't live very long. I find it interesting that some have observed that Sharon is very possessive and jealous. The way she conducts herself, on national TV is interesting to say the least. She has said/done things that cross the line, but I've always thought that if Ozzy did the same, she wouldn't be very happy about it. Maybe it is payback for all the despicable things he has done.
I'm really not trying to be a Belieber, but people his age don't necessarily read news/know history. I know I didn't at that age. My kid, my brother didn't have much interest either. I didn't regularly read a newspaper until I was 21. It was enough to keep up with my friends and their lives/drama and I was in that phase of Me,Me,Me. Thankfully I outgrew that phase. And so will Bieber. I said it somewhere else in this forum, for all of his power, money and influence he isn't a trainwreck such as Lohan, YET. He's going to make mistakes, say something stupid and act stupid. I give him a pass because he is still a TEENAGER. If he's pulling these stunts 5 years from now, then he's fair game for criticism.

I guess we should be glad he didn't go to Bergen-Belsen or Auschwitz. Lord only knows what crap he would have pulled there.
If it's true that Sharon left Ozzy because of the substance abuse, I'm not surprised. I'm pretty sure she's the reason he's still alive to begin with. He seems like a person that needs a strong partner who won't let him get away with anything. I respect her for putting her foot down. I hope his sobriety holds and they work things out. I don't think there's probably anyone else on the planet for either of them.
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov
