Private Affair

Whatever the reasons were for Tiger Woods to crash his car and issue an apologetic statement about his “transgressions,” as far as I’m concerned the story has run its course. The man is a professional golfer, not an elected official or the leader of a religious community, and as far as I can tell, he’s never made public pronouncements about how other people should live their lives while demonstrating marked hypocrisy in the process. So until Mr. Woods makes news that is beyond the realm of gossip, such as winning a golf tournament, I don’t plan to write about him, and the next time you’ll see “Tiger Update” here, it will be about the Detroit baseball team.
