  • Tiger's Mistake Corrected Today

    The world listened as Tiger Woods apologized today, and the issue of his infidelity can now be closed! His mother hugged him and cried, how touching.
    I guess every married man learned a good lesson today, it is a mistake to cheat on your wife. I'm glad Tiger cleared this up for all of us, imagine how much heartache he prevented for others?

    I don't care about Tiger or his marriage, he sure didn't. I do think it is insulting to his family, his sex partners and the general public to called what he did a "mistake". A mistake is what happens if you get drunk at a bar or party and have a one night stand. He should have said, I'm a man and I love having sex with women, Yes, I'm sorry for all hurt by my behavior but I wouldn't change a thing if I wasn't caught.

    It's an even bigger mistake to even get married in the first place it seems.

    Now watch, in a few years, how this footage will be used as an admission of guilt during the divorce proceedings and he will be forced to lose his house, home, and fortunes.

    An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure I guess.

          You know what? Like who really should give a damn! I am so sick of these celebrity jerks getting so much attention for thier sins. Are we really supposed to sympathize with the plight and failings of these spoiled, rich-beyond-reason types who wallow in their piggish consumption and then throw their tears of remorse on the public in a quest to maintain their celebrity?

          I noticed a couple of weeks ago there was a huge explosion at a gas powered generation plant in Connecticut that killed a number of people. CBS by mistake showed about 30-seconds of film, but quickly corrected with the proper footage of another story it apparently deemed more newsworthy. The Connecticut story was never covered and in fact didn't even appear on CNN that night. I don't think it received any real coverage on the nightly news.

          Yet tonight, the "Tiger story" took up the first 12 minutes of the CBS news! (Considering that all the commercials took place in the second have of the news program, I would estimate that the "Tiger story" was worth have the news time.... what a waste!)

          (In all fairness, the "war" did get a quick report, I think it was about 60 seconds.)

          It appears that we are more interested in the salacious happenings of the celebrity world than we are in the occurances that really have effect on our lives in this world.

          Perhaps it's just my paranoia, but it appears to me that the network news is more concerned with keeping us focused on the trivial, rather than report on the events that are effecting our real world.

            Howard stern explained it best in the few weeks prior to moving to XM radio.

            A caller raised a question about how standard radio worked. It was in this brief moment that the complete truth was spoken. I will quote this the best I can from memory:
            Stern: "The media is in the business of attracting advertisers."

            Meaning, it is the networks' duty to to drum up as much viewership as possible in order to justify increasing the costs of advertisments during their various programs. In short, the greater the ratings, the greater the price to place an ad during those high peak times of, thus the greater the profits the network receives.

              You are not paranoid in the least! The American public has been distracted from the relevant, and slowly "dumbed" over the years. There are some stations that provide thought provoking information although most of it is somewhat biased. We have access to so many channels now that it is less demanding and much more entertaining to not make the effort to seek out tv that is worthwhile. The networks function on ratings and they provide what the masses will watch.

              You know who watches the News, the thought provoking reports, who reads the eye opening blogs, folks who understand the urgency and need for such things. Most people are still in the dark, clueless to the seriousness of our many important national and local situations. They know who is on "Dancing with the Stars", and "American Idol", but they don't know who represents them in Washington. Sorry, but everytime I start thinking about all this I end up realizing we are screwed.

                Well, no not really. What you are witnessing is the networks' desprate attempt to compete with news delivered over the internet. I AM what those networks fear: A generation that no longer watches television, but rather type along on a nice convenient laptop, where I can pick and chose what I listen to, from my own decisions, not some puppet editor in an office somewhere. Thus, those stations are forced to jump, clap, stomp, and scream to get people's attention.

                  I can't argue that getting married is a good idea when more than half end in divorce, but it is so much more complicated than that. Marriage should be a opportunity to share life with that special person, maybe have children and grow old together. Marriage can be a tool that allows two people to give of themselves, and get so much more in return. Unfortunately, the same biological engines that lead us to ideas of marriage, continue to fuel our desire for intimacy with others. We have to stay on guard and understand why we think and feel as we do. Tiger was not a good candidate for marriage and should not have gotten married, or had children. He was/is way too famous, wealthy, young and immature to control his sexual urges. I don't care how beautiful, or passionate his wife was, there was way too much opportunity for him to stay faithful.

                  We are not on par (pardon the pun) with Tiger. We can say no, can stay faithful and can enjoy a wonderful married life. Life holds no guarantees (Ridgid's excluded) women can be unfaithful as well, problems with money, drugs and extended family scratch the surface of what can wreck a marriage.
                  I still think it is sad to play it safe and miss the chance at Love & Marriage, because of others who could not make it work. Be your own man, a faithful man and grab all life has to offer, a wife and children. Let those celebrities with their fame and wealth live in envy of your life. Or not!

                            I tell you what,


                            after looking at that picture above, and the image of him yesterday?


                            He looks heavier, realy does.


                            I'm glad he waited 3 months to let the scars heal up on his face.


                            Why 3 months? Oh, y'know!
