Tiger Woods has finally faced the press. He's back "on his game," said a commentator on Good Morning America this morning. When asked how he was different than before the commentator said he was "more human." Now what does he mean to say by those words? On asked for clarification the commentator said Tiger was more honest and transparent. Hmmmm....

I don't doubt that Tiger was indeed, more honest and transparent. I got a hint of humility, though somewhat guarded on some questions. It's as if a hard crust of a persona he was projecting cracked, and the real Tiger finally stood up. Boy, how many of us can relate?

Hmm....we so often hear the words, "Oh, I'm sorry, please forgive me. I'm only human." Tiger's behavior beforehand was not "only human," it was hardly human. It was inhuman. It was broken and untrustworthy, and that's not part of being human, it's part of being broken.

Ironic, isn't it? You have to be broken of your brokenness in order to become human, and the media got something right for a change!
