A bad round

The media circus surrounding Tiger Woods accident is a total waste of ink and oxygen in their query to invade Woods' privacy. The media has bounced this story around until it has evolved into one of the biggest pieces of tabloid garbage that there ever was.

Pundits on the airwaves are clamoring for dirt and declaring that Woods owes an explanation to the public. My question is whose business it is beside his wife and himself anyway. They owe no one the right to know their personal business.

A report published by a particular sports news syndicate says that Woods will lose millions of dollars from sponsors as a result of his accident and resulting rumors, but I doubt very seriously [they will] because they are in business to sell their products and Tiger Woods is definitely the man for that.

A recent poll of the people showed, when asked if they were sponsors would they continue to use Tiger Woods in the highly dramatized aftermath of his accident, 66 percent responded that they would.

That tells me that media is wrong in their assumptions and even if he did lose all of his sponsors how much hurt could that possibly bring to bear on one of the richest sportsmen in the history of sports. After all they would be the losers in the long run if they dropped him as the face and user of their sporting products.

Hang in there Tiger and remain silent. Your personal affairs are nobody's business but your own and certainly doesn't interest me or change my admiration of you in the least .

C.W.Clouse, 37209

Probably, House. And they didn't even use him on that last drive, did they? I think Dinger's going to be gone in the off season. Fisher can't keep coordinators.

Funditto, Sally F. Bone has a Bellemeade zip code. I suspect Ms. Bone was sipping tea at ''Cheekwood'' when composing the LTE. Isn't you is it?

By: Loner on 12/3/09 at 11:21

Good morning, Nashville!

I checked this site earlier and there was no fresh LTE, so I'm late to the party.

As for the LTE, congrats, Dooley. Your letter expresses many of my own thoughts on the Tiger Woods affair. I do find it hard to have any sympathy for a guy who thinks with his dipstick. Tiger was not satified with 18 holes a day, he needed more.

Gold-digging bimbos naturally prey on guys like Woods, he may be brilliant of the greens and fairways, but his off-the-course IQ is apparently quite low.

There is one fella out there who must be happy to see somebody else in the public pilllory - Dave Letterman.

Hay Blanket. Is the kid on the right, sid?

Kosh, thanks for the info on Essex. I've been there several times but had no idea they were selling big screens now! (been a while) That is the size I'm looking for too. I'll check them out. Next time you're out that way, stop in the Hot Dog Shop on the corner of the Plaza Professional building and have a cold one and a dog!

If my husband has an affair, it's personal. If joe smo has an affair, it's personal. But if any person making billions (or millions) Because they are a public figure, a great athlete or actor or politician, then it become a public matter. Didn't he know that?

And how dumb does a man have to be to leave a voice recording message to his bimbo lover? How dumb? Well, apparently Tiger is not smarter than a 5th grader. I mean, these men always fall for "little girls" who need to get one up on them. Don't they get it yet?

Men, get united! Stop dinking around with weak women who kiss and tell. Get yourself a hottie who's got something to lose -- like her job -- if she tells.

Better still, if you're married, be faithful. Don't dink around.

By: Loner on 12/3/09 at 11:50

Amen, Sid. Keep it in the pants. The trouble is, most men have a thin veneer of decency that is easily stripped away by an attractive seductress. If a twenty-something hottie rubs up against a forty-something man, it's just a mater of time before the guy succumbs to his natural instincts;;;;'twas ever thus.

Clandestine state-operatives have used the "honeypot" trap to snare many unwary politicians into a blackmail situation, assassination or kidnapping. That is how the Mossad operates, they grabbed Mordechai Vanunu and others using the honeypot scam. Some claim that Monica Lewinsky was an unwitting, honeypot bait-babe, who knows?

By: gdiafante on 12/3/09 at 11:55

The fact that both sexes have routinely "strayed" since the beginning of time, it seems reasonable that man is not meant to be limited to one mate.

I say seven each.

That's what Joseph Smith said, Gd.

By: gdiafante on 12/3/09 at 12:01

I know. He also said men were living on the moon who dress as Quakers and live to be 1000.

You're welcome.
Hmmmm, I never knew there was a Hot Dog place there. I will definitely check it out.

Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, those guys knew how to party.

By: Loner on 12/3/09 at 12:31

Smith was assassinated in Illinois by a para-military group acting with the Governor's covert blessing.

Brigham Young added an Hebraic element to the unfolding heresy, non-Mormons were called "Gentiles". Most Christians are Jew wannabes, but the Mormons took this sort of brown-nosing theology to a new level of absurdity.

Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, actually thinks he's part of a lost tribe of Hebrews.....Oy!

Here's a peace plan for the ME: let's round up and ship the Mormons over to the Holyland, with prophecy fulfilled, Jesus will then return, right?

Would-be robber sends note

Shirley - A convenience store owner who showed compassion to a would-be robber says he received an apology note and $50 in the mail.

The unsigned note said it was from the man who tried to rob Mohammad Sohail, who has a store on Long Island near New York City. The note said the would-be robber has a new job, a child and is staying out of trouble.

Sohail told the newspaper Newsday that he was saving the $50 for charity.

The bat-wielding man tearfully told Sohail in May that he was trying to feed his family.

Good thing a gun-toting customer didn't shoot him.

By: Kosh III on 12/3/09 at 12:47

Not quite Loner.
The "New Jerusalem" where Jesus will return to reign is in Independence Missouri on a parcel of land known as the Temple Lot where the new Heavenly Temple will be built. Only problem is that the Utah group doesn't own the property, it's owned by two other "Mormon" sects: the LDS-Temple Lot and the Community of Christ--previously named the Reorganized LDS.

But that doesn't change the fact that Hatch is an axx.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/3/09 at 12:54

I saw that yesterday, Blanket.

Good things do happen.

However it would have been an entirely different story if idgaf had been there. The headline would have been 'Neighborhood shot up, by derangred storekeeper, while robber escapes.'

Jackson County, Mo, Kosh, is where the Prophet said that Zion was to be found and was the place where Jesus would re-enter earth's atmosphere and touch down for soft landing.

Palmyra NY, where Smith had the visions etc., is a canal town about 30 miles from here. Mormons are trying to recolonize the area, with little success, but they keep trying.

I remember being in basic training with some Mormons, they were in the enlisted reserve, thereby avoiding Vietnam, they went on their missions after their 8-weeks of military life. The LDS was pro-war, as long as the "Gentiles" were being sacrificed instead of their own. The LDS is still a very hawkish church...so long as their own hides are not on the line.

To me, Mormonism is a heretical form of heresy. It's heresy squared.

Obama can promise health care to 50 million uninsured Americans, but he can’t override the veto of the war lobby and the insurance lobby. The war lobby says its war profits are more important than health care and that the country can’t afford both the “war on terror” and “socialized medicine.”

The insurance lobby says health care has to be provided by private health insurance; otherwise, we can’t afford it.

The war and insurance lobbies rattled their campaign contribution pocketbooks and quickly convinced Congress and the White House that the real purpose of the health care bill is to save money by cutting Medicare and Medicaid benefits, thereby “getting entitlements under control.”
