Tiger Woods' affair: who cares!

Naturally, all headlines of any major news outlet are posting stories related to Tiger Woods’ recent admission to having an affair. I’ve received text messages about this, I’ve seen tweets, it’s become a Twitter “trending topic”, it’s all over Facebook, I heard about it on the radio on my way to work, saw a segment on CBS Evening News – the list goes on…

Why is there such a big fuss about this? Why are so many people mad, much less even care? Is it because Tiger Woods is held to a higher standard due to his fame and fortune? Is it because we rejoice in people such as Tiger making mistakes, consequently suffering?

It seems as if it takes a certain person to truly care about something like this. It takes a certain person to buy the tabloids and watch the programs that make money on issues such as these. Sadly enough, there’s an immense portion of the population that care more about Tiger Woods’ sex life than do about public policy, religion or current events.

Who cares – let it go.
