  1. Ahab, you are right on. Right on. I would never use the word “eccentric” to describe Sheen or Bernie Madoff. I suppose, however, that the statement is more ironic than factual. It goes to how we can excuse the behavior of the rich and influential, but we shuffle off the poor to a place of derision.
