I Bet You Think This Post Is About You

American society appears obsessed with the private lives of others. With better technology, the trend of announcing late breaking, personal information sees no way of satiating the American public's intent on being privy to every tawdry detail they can come across. Dork, self-professed-not-black, pro golfer Tiger Woods has gotten more coverage for working the hoes than the holes and yet the question each time I hear the newest discovery to his private scandal is, 'why should I give a damn'? Aren't there children missing, wars in various parts of the world and Senators stalling healthcare legislation? Don't those stories warrant more attention than some fat cat overindulgent "athlete" with poor judgment? Entertainment Tonight, the National Enquirer and even The View can do an in depth presentation of a celebrity's mistep, but when CNN and NBCs Today Show lead off with extra marital affairs as newsworthy - especially in light of the state of the world - something is wrong.

Keep passin' the open windows...

I agree. It seems that the "notable" news stations often broadcast gossip and entertainment. If I want to know who is sleeping with who, I would go to TMZ. When I want to know what's going on in the world that has significant impact on our world-people-finances-etc. I should be able to go to CNN and just see that.

Oh, he was working the "holes" too. Trust me. Anyway, can I get an Amen. Who cares? Ain't we in a war? The news can not be this slow. And he's a punk for bowing down to the crap. If my apology ain't enough then kiss my ass. Take your endorcement, I'm good. Hell, he's got more money banked up then i'll ever make in my life time. Fuck the endorcement, do gold and the ladies if you so choose and get off my television screen. Hell, I don't watch golf anyway, so why am forced to see you big teeth ass now.

Whew. That felt good!

Oh and hi to you Cocoa Rican. lol
