News of the Day Dec. 4th, 2009

So the buzz on all the sites is the Tiger Woods story. I think that something as tired as the cheating husband would have gotten old by now but somehow when it happens to a celebrity it's new. New's and new are not necessarily one and the same in my book. There's not much to say other than he has admitted to his affair(s) and gone public. We have people all over the board casting accusations and judgement but in the end it's just one man doing what statistics say is not all that rare an occurrence. I don't have to send you to any sites to read up on Tiger Woods you can find one easy enough. I would add that just because one becomes famous it doesn't make them infallible. Politicians, celebrities, professional athletes, they all have the same crisis of conscience that all people can fall prey too. On the same note they all have to pay for their mistakes, the same as the rest of society, though they do it much more visibly than most.

In other news, Alice is set to air on Syfy on Dec. 6th and 7th. Directed and written by Nick Willings, it is meeting with mixed reviews. If you don't know Nick Willings, he was the creator of Tin Man, another Syfy original that met with critical success. Either way Alice does still seem well worth watching. Based off the classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewiss Carroll, it at least will offer a fresh look to an intriguing story. Tune in and let me know what you think.

ABC is looking to put Goerge Stephanopoulus on Good Morning America. You might know Goerge from his tenure as a Bill Clintons advisor in the White House. He's made a name for himself as a political analyst and commentator since then and I'm guessing ABC is hoping to bring a little of that magic to their morning show. Read more about it here.

Susan Boyles, 'I dreamed a dream,' has hit number one, surprising many in the music industry. If you don't know who Susan Boyles is I'm disappointed in you. She shot to fame after appearing on Britians Got Talent, and losing, and then having a nervous break down. It appears she's come back in flying colors. I have to admit, I admire this lady for not only being a phenomenal singer but also making it through the vultures that have picked at her every step of the way. She breaks the mold that we often see in popular music today, where appearance is often more important than actual talent. Maybe the music industry will realize that music is about the talent and not the image behind it. I doubt it though. Read more about it here.

That wraps it up for today, check back again. Thanks for reading.
