SI on Tiger's apology

In an article in the current issue of Sports Illustrated on Tiger Woods' recent televised apology, the subhead of which called it "a sad performance," writer Alan Shipnuck, makes an interesting and pertinent observation:

"Woods repeatedly apologized for his myriad mistakes, but he didn't exactly take ownership of them, 'I felt that I had worked hard my entire life and deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me,' he said. 'I felt I was entitled. Thanks to money and fame, I didn't have to go far to find them.' Here he sounded exactly like all those messed-up child actors on episodes of E! True Hollywood Story: Don't blame me, blame the fame."
