Screw the media's response, I can't believe I'd be allowed to dis the police on three separate occasions with such impunity. I'm a child of Hollywood, understand privacy desires et al, but Woods' response (ok, his lack of) and the willingness of the police to allow it has astonished and depressed me.

Oddly enough, in America you have the right to remain silent. You really do! You don't ever have to tell the police anything, especially if the truth is self incriminating (it's in the constitution). That's why lawyers are constantly telling their clients to shut up so they don't get in trouble.
The Bill of Rights has never really polled that well and if it weren't so hard to change the constitution law and order pols would have probably done away with it a long time ago.

When you are willing to make millions of dollars in the public eye then you are subject to public scrutiny to your private behaviors. You can't have it both ways, either you want to be a celebrity or not.

And oddly enough, Philogratis, you don't technically have to have broken any laws to be publicly ridiculed as a degenerate, attention-seeking, shamelessly mercenary hypocrite who deserves to reap all the bad publicity you have spent more than a decade most aggressively sowing in the public's face.

Good heavens, what kind of idiotic logic says because you are wealthy in the public eye that you should automatically suffer intrusions of your privacy from the press? Tatashady, you are frankly nuts.

Tiger's problem is that he is the ultimate control freak and none of us can stand that. This incident is one where he has no control and we delight in it, voyeurs that we are.

You heard it asked here first. Tiger Woods is as good at golfing as Michael Jackson was at making beautiful music. I am actually frightened at the parallels I see here. Could it be that Tiger is another Michael in the making? Is Tiger Woods a second coming of Michael Jackson? Tiger’s running into the tree, I see, as symbolic of the row of hedges being cut down. The fire hydrant represents an opening of the valve of truth. Privacy will now be a thing of the past for Tiger, and his every move will be the subject of the closest scrutiny. Does he have the mental toughness to stand up to what’s sure to come? If he doesn’t have what it takes, then what he did in the darkness of that fateful night will be seen in the light of day, as there will be repeat performances. There may well be a tiger inside of Tiger, which he can’t control. We never knew of this, but the occasional outburst on the golf courses just may have been the tip of the hidden tiger’s ear. We didn’t want to see any further, even though we heard what seemed to be a growl forming just below the surface.
