Unbelievable. The media are soooo quick to crucify Tiger Woods, assuming and printing the worst about his DUI arrest. Turns out, he wasn’t drinking at all, was he?
Turns out, he had back surgery just last month and is on medications, including pain medications. He never should have gotten behind the wheel of a car, but apparently he didn’t realize that.
When he did realize it and realized that he posed a threat to himself and to others, he did the responsible thing and pulled off the road and stopped driving.
I think that’s behavior we want to encourage, not condemn. But that wouldn’t make a good news story, would it?
