I’m sure most of you are aware of the minor car accident in Windermere Florida involving Tiger Woods recently. It popped up on the local news here (I only live two towns away) seconds after it happened and we were all so worried and our hearts went out to him and his family. It’s all you heard on the TV, poor Tiger, we love him so much, we hope he’s okay. Then the next day the claws came out. Pitch forks and torches were lit by the media nationwide to pry the details of the incident out of the Woods’ home and straight into our lives. Celebrity marriage or not, it is certainly none of our business and I have made a conscious effort not to watch the news, especially local, because I will not to get sucked in. They’ve turned Tiger from hero beloved by all, into adulterous manipulator overnight. He’s still the same person everyone adored before, let’s try to keep it that way.
I don’t believe that his transgressions necessitate any public acknowledgment. No one giving him money for his name or talents are going to care about his personal life and neither should we. His endorsements are for sports equipment and cars, not truth-telling pills. Damn the media for forcing anyone to care about any of this, and this is all you will hear from me on the subject.
This link that I am providing for you will tell you a bit of what this ‘scandal‘, as some may call it, details. Yet, if you are looking for tabloid info on this subject, look elsewhere because the LA Times agrees with me.
