9 Irons, and Tigers and car wrecks - Oh, my.
Through out this entire epic saga I have been asking myself the same question: "Whose business is it, anyway?" I would hate my personal life to be played out in front of the world.
I'm sure there are many of you who say, "He's a public figure and therefore..."
No. His job is one which involves us as spectators. He is paid a great deal for doing his job in front of a very critical/adoring public. When he goes home, he goes home. It should be the same for all of us. We don't follow a clerk home from the store, our dentist, our priest...
There are women in bikini's now standing on the road with signs for Tiger. "Tiger! I'll be your mistress!" What do these bimbo's want? For him to pull over for a quickie?
He still has a family and whatever decisions lead to him cheating are known only to him. What they do now is also known only the he and his wife. As a husband and a father to be, I would hate the kind of scrutiny they are getting.
None of us are perfect, though some scream and pontificate as if they are. This scenario would never play itself out on the evening news for a ninety-nine percent of us. Let's give them the same opportunity.
It's time we stopped goose-necking and left them alone.
