Forgive Tiger Woods?  
A poll asks if I forgive Tiger Woods. I'm not his wife; it's not up to me to forgive or not forgive. It's really none of my business. I don't even watch golf.

Enough already!

I really do not understand all of the moral grandstanding the media has done. You're right: it is none of our business. He does not owe us any explanations. He does not owe us any public statements. We, on the other hand, owe him space to live his own life and fix this with his wife or not. That is his choice, not ours.

I guess it is easier to "report" on Tiger than on the many, many injustices occurring in our own country...

I can kind of see it when they do it to politicians, but sports figures and actors...whatever. I just don't care. They beat it into the ground, too. It's just crazy.

I'm just sick and tired of the whole "Nosepoke" school of journalism. I don't really give a damn about the private lives of anyone not personally connected to me and IMNSHO, we don't really need to know about every celeb's every burp, fart and crap. I walk by a newsstand with a pile of gossip rags and I can feel my IQ dropping.
To quote the great Robin Williams, "I used the National Enquirer to line the cat's box and now he won't crap in there. He just looks at me and says,'That would be redundant.'"

I will never understand why some people feel as strongly about other people's lives as their own. Celebrities, sinners (no connection intended), slackers, heathens, plebs, toffs...there just seems to be this innate human tendency to nose around other people's business and tick them off.

I guess so we feel superior, but I don't. I may not have committed the exact same transgressions but I'm all too human and have hurt people I loved.

"We" as a non-celebrity society are obsessed with seeing celebrities fall. We adore them, but we also are excited when they fail...we're jealous of their lives as much as we love them. We like to see that their marriages are as flawed as ours, their spouses cheat, they get the same diseases we do, their kids take drugs, they get involved in crimes and murders...we love to love them and we love to hate them. We want them to be living the glorious dream lives we'll never have, but then we want them to be just as miserable as we are.

Oh, society.
