I SUFFER FOR TIGER WOODS

Can somebody tell me, can anybody out there tell me, why, when we’re comfortably settled into the 21st Century, we’re still using an Elizabethan yardstick to measure honor? I honor Tiger Woods, for his gifts and for his accomplishments.

Tiger Woods is an American super-star. He has made it to the top by mastering a sport and breaking all kinds of records. Can sticks and stones make him less than that? Not in my book.

I’ve just seen him discussed on Larry King Live. We learned today that he’s a lousy public speaker, but Stephan A. Smith perfectly voiced my feelings about Tiger Woods with his reasonable, logical, compassionate insight into what happened to Tiger Woods and why. It’s one of the oldest of stories.

What’s beyond me is why his weakness is perceived as being all his fault? Dozens, if not scores, of women are considered “injured” by him when the truth is that he gave each and every one of them exactly what they wanted more than anything else in the world at the time. (Some of them knew full well that he was a married man.)

But then once each of them got him in the sack, she wanted more. She wanted it all. Most women want it all. (Yeah, I know, men too.)
