So Much for Real News

Well now that Tiger Woods has made his apology public there appears to be no room for any 'real' news. Health care reform, deficit, GOP insanity, insurance company abuse, global warming, whatever is all so yesterday. Frankly, I don't really care if Tiger apologized or not and to be truthful it was none of our business but something between he and his wife. That being said, being ultra wealthy/famous in this country/world does give you special privileges and a distance from consequences that does not exist for us proles. That's just the way it is and it will never change.

On another subject....the guy who flew his plane into the building in Austin was a terrorist by definition. Just because he is white and an American or even if he was insane doesn't make it any different. From what I have read of his 'manifesto' there is probably a lot he and I would have agreed on but taking out even your legitimate frustrations with the world does not justify violence and especially when it means taking other lives.
