A Twitterstorm on Tiger Woods is now starting. Here are a few that I put on my Twitter page in just a few minutes:

Tiger Woods’ statement was believable. “I have much to atone for.it’s up to me to make amends.” I really liked his humility. Time to move on 14 minutes ago from web Retweeted by you and 8 others

Go to the link for links on these Twitters. (I will be on the road most of the day so any comments I make on events will be done via cellphone on Twitter. I now listen exclusively to Sirius satellite radio and am usually tuned into CNN, CSPAN, NPR or POTUS (Politics of the United States which is sort of like CSPAN in some ways) rather than much left or right talk radio. So I listen to a lot of news and live feeds. Twitter will allow me to comment more when I’m on long drives and at airports.)

    American’s obsession with celebrity borders on pathological. Evidence to that is the continuing focus on what would otherwise be just another garden-variety sex-addict cheating on his wife to beat the band. So he can play good golf. WHO CARES? I know a few average college students who have more to give society in their pinky fingernail than Tiger Woods could ever manage. What does golf give us as a people? Cheap voyeuristic distraction.

    Distraction.

    We have many many things to focus on that need our fervent attention. So unless you’re posting stuff about Tiger Woods to help insomniacs, please just…….zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

    I listen to POTUS daily. It’s really the best for determining what people were trying to say as opposed to relying on media or blogosphere spin.

    I used to like Pete Dominick (on POTUS) a lot, but since health care reform has been in the news he’s drifted further and further to the left so I’m listening to POTUS a bit less lately.

    ” I know a few average college students who have more to give society in their pinky fingernail ”

    Speaking of celebrity athletes (at all levels)…

    While I know paying for college often is tough, and I don’t begrudge anyone with the physical gifts to be rewarded with an easy or free ride through it, and often (paid) celebrity status as well, I do find it telling when (as I’ve seen, and as I feel myself) parents write letters to newspapers (or send them on-line nowadays) bitter that they took pains to have their kids study hard subjects rather than learn how to play football or basketball.

    Added to that, the corruption accompanying celebrity in pro sports (which I still follow once in a while; I have more fun thinking of better ways to set up the competition most of the time) and in collegiate pro-sports-farm-club athletics (presidential pay is scandalous, but not only in and of itself, but in rivaling the huge sums top coaches are being paid at colleges), and it’s no wonder some have no sympthy for Woods. (Not that he deserves it; he deserves reprobation; his apology speech, carried by the media as if were Obama speaking, was, as one lefty said, smug rather than contrite.)

    Folks, I don’t have satellite radio, but I have to ask: Is POTUS something like C-SPAN used to be, or even better?

      DLS, here’s a link:

      On weekdays it’s mostly straight news with some commentary, speeches, interviews, straight feeds of town hall meetings, etc. They carry all of the WH press briefings which are interesting although Robert Gibbs spends most of his time avoiding questions (or more properly, avoiding answers) Some of this is really good and some deathly boring. There is also a call-in show by Pete Dominick who tries to be non-partisan but has staked out a firmly liberal position on health care.

      On weekends there is an african-american political talk show called “The New School” which as you would expect is slanted to the left but usually pretty good. Pajamas Media also has a show which as you would expect is slanted to the right but also good.

      I usually listen to it while driving or on-line while doing something else. I don’t know that I would get satellite just for POTUS but it is nice to have.

        Hey, wow.  Thanks, Da Goat.

        No problem with the leftist bias.  It is about government, as well as being part of the media.  Leftism, the bias for which is the norm there (government, media, academia), is routine.  I’ve come to expect it.  (Even on alternative media and alternative portions of the media, the righties are rare — those Limbaugh copycats are just exploiting contemporary status as professional “rebels” or “outsiders.”)

        “an african-american political talk show called ‘The New School’ which as you would expect is slanted to the left but usually pretty good.”

        So this may be a contemporary equivalent to Jesse Jackson’s “Keep Hope Alive” (I hear it sometimes here in the Southwest), if not a breezier thing like Tavis Smiley or now, Montel Williams.  Left-leaning, to be expected (like expecting Dem political signs in the District of Columbia — trying finding anything red, instead of blue, there!).
