I read Vanity Fair

I read Vanity Fair.  Sometimes it takes me a little longer than I might like to get through an issue.  This isn’t to say I am not always reading.  I am.  This month’s issue, or shall I say, the February 2010 issue has Tiger Woods on the cover.  I need to be honest.  I think one of the reasons I haven’t read the issue is because I don’t really care very much about this Tiger Woods story.  I know it has taken up much of the news since American Thanksgiving and I know he is a great golfer but I don’t really like golf very much and I feel badly for the Woods family but that is about it.  Why is it still a story?  What is it about celebrity’s lives that is so fascinating?  If anyone has some suggestions, I’m interested.

    I think it is because Tiger Woods was one of those people that the American people put on a pedestal. Not only is he an amazing athlete, but he also seemed like an amazing person, too. He seemed perfect. Then, we learned that he likely cheated on his wife with MULTIPLE women? I think the situation is just so contrary to the image he/we developed that it is fascinating.
