Early Yesterday, my blog encouraged Mr. Tiger Woods to avoid speaking to the police about his personal affairs (pun intended):
Call me, Tiger (link to McGloneBlog)
Fortunately for all of us, it now appears that he decided to Follow My Advice.
Seriously, though, I think Mr. Woods has set a great example for all Americans by simply exercising his civil rights and providing only that information required by the Hit-n-Run laws.
Following this story this weekend has been stark reminder that far too many Americans, journalists included, think that "Talking to the Police" is the right thing to do.
Cops were quoted all over the place saying that they just had a few questions for Tiger, and "of course" he will talk! to them---- everybody does! Well, Not any More!! Tiger has struck a mighty blow for the citizens of this country. Previously criticized for not being socially active, I applaud Mr. Woods for setting this great example for the rest of us! HooRay for the Good Guys!!
Play to Win, Tiger!
