Contemporary logic avers that keeping up with current affairs and being knowledgable are the same thing. Current affairs is delivered to these knowledge seekers via news media. The same news media that has in the last few days spent countless hours analyzing the effectiveness of Tiger Wood's apology. How does anybody measure the effectiveness of an 'orchestrated' apology? Doesn't the fact that it is anaylzed make the apology look more fake? Who are these specimens who seems to care deeply about Tiger Wood's apology? Why does it matter to them? Are these the same set of people who seek to know current afairs like it was some exam syllabus they need to cover.
Set aside for a moment that golf is more boring than watching cow dung slapped on the wall get dry. And is probably less entertaining than watching news about golf - which I can tell you is mind-numbingly boring. Are these current-affairs junkies following Tiger Woods because of his "eka pathni vradhan" skills? What does the fact that he screwed around have anything to do with his golf skills? Is it even relevant to the "sport"? So do these people realize that Tiger Woods is a filthy rich man? Rich men sleep around with as many women they want because they can. The non-filthy rich fill the bank balance void by watching current affairs, getting enraged and analyzing apologies.
