Why I Don't Care About Tiger Woods (And You Shouldn't Either)

Tiger Woods apologizes for irresponsible and selfish behavior in FloridaAll robotic apologies aside, I do not care about Tiger Woods.  How many times do we have to see this show before we get tired of watching it?  Trusted public figure does some awful stuff, goes into "rehab" and then apologizes at a news conference.

I'm done.

We should all spend more time looking up to the people in our life who've really helped us and stop wasting our time with celebrities and athletes.

We make these people too important.

PS-My apologies for the preachy tone of this post.

About Me

Welcome, I'm Tom Long.

I've loved politics ever since I was a kid. Mom and Dad always talked politics at the dinner table (and at breakfast and lunch too). Growing up, I was able to get a strong sense of both sides of our democracy, having both a liberal and conservative parent each.

They may not have been Carville and Matlin, but they knew their stuff and they both certainly always made themselves heard. From them I not only learned what it was to be a conservative or a liberal, but also that in order to get anything accomplished conservatives and liberals had to work together.
