Top Story

Yeah, Obama will give a vital speech on Afghanistan.  Yeah, the economy sucks and jobs are hard to come by.  But the top story is Tiger Woods, if you follow the cable TV spewmeisters (NYTimes today had it on D1, where it belongs). 

But what about the "Golf Media?"  Wouldn't they be all over this story with pathbreaking journalism?

Not really, says this columnist.

When it comes to what people know, often we get caught up in the truly trivial.  This is one of those occasions.

A sad commentary on how shallow the general population truly has become. We lionize the wrong people. Overpaid celebraties who contribute nothing are not worth the time to mention.
