Article claims Tiger Woods has gotten 15 times the media coverage as Climategate. Not that he wanted it, lol.

certainly people are more interested in Tiger Woods. Of course that is from all the spoonfeeding.

The media is an easy target but really they just give the people what they want. I have a friend that works in local talk radio, this Tiger thing is a bonanza for their ratings. If Tiger goes on Oprah it'll get 30 million viewers - how many would watch a scientist on Oprah?

Peoples' tastes and interests are so strange to me. How many of these people even like golf? I guess they just like to see juicy soap opera plots befall famous people.

I'd be willing to say atleast 1/4 of them don't even know how many holes are usually in a round of golf.

Rounds? I thought golf was three periods of 20 minutes each?

Global Warming is too lethal for the black people, it seems.

Cap-and-trade killed Michael Jackson (http://whatreallyhappened.com/content/todays-vote-hr2454-cap-trade-while-nation-watches-michael-jackson)...and now Woods.

LOL

America's obsession with the rich and famous disgusts me to the point of fury.
