Enough of it Already!

Unless you've been living on Mars in a cave with cotton in your ears, you may have heard the news about Tiger Woods. I mean, haven't we heard enough? Every day the "girlfriend" number goes up. And how many of these women are actually legit? You know, just because he bought you a drink, doesn't make you his girlfriend!

I know that the world looked at him like some sort of Messiah, but guess what? He's just a man! A man with 750 jillion dollars at his disposal to do whatever he wants. NOT that I am agreeing with what he did in any way, shape or form, I just think that it is pretty much a proven fact that people with that kind of money do stupid things - thinking that they are above reproach - and then get caught with their pants down.


I'm not a sports fan; I don't follow golf. I know who he is and I was fine with just knowing he was a golfer. I don't care to see 89 images of his Escalade all banged up or the fire hydrant that it hit. I'm sorry that his mother in law went to the hospital, I don't need to hear the 911 call. There are people in the world with REAL problems. He cheated on his wife? Sure. Did she beat the crap out of him with a golf club? I can only hope.

But in the end, I'm tired of seeing it everywhere. It's unnecessary and irrelevant to what is really going on in the world.

So stop it!

It's amazing how the media can wear out a story, isn't it?

But that's the media in a nutshell. It's all celebrity driven. When I was growing up it wouldn't have even registered as news. That was clearly defined Rona Barret territory. Not anymore.

I also have had enough.They did the same with Michael Jackson.It gets to the point you do not even want the name mentioned.
The media calls it news.I call it lazy stupidity on their behalf.Go find some real stories.

Well said Stacey!!
I live in Australia and we are bombarded by this story as well.
We need the media to focus more important issues.
