Tiger Woods has two trophies he can use as bookends for a year like no other.
It started 322 days ago down the coast at Torrey Pines when he won his first tournament of the year in a playoff at the Buick Invitational. It ended Sunday at the Target World Challenge with a 6-under 66 that allowed Woods to blow past U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy and win his tournament for the third time in eight years.
In between came a massive loss with the May 3 death of his father, a missed cut for the first time in a major, then six months of golf that Woods considers his best ever.
The benchmark always has been 2000, when his nine PGA Tour victories included three straight majors. He won 53 percent of his PGA Tour events this year — eight of 15 — including the final two majors. more
I have nothing more to say about Tiger. I have run out of words.
Wow, what confusion. We move into a new studio and we can’t find out butts with both hands and a map. Because so much was going to on the studio and I can’t focus on anything. There are several uh’s and um’s. Sorry.
In spite of these difficulties, the show must go on!! So, I went on. My first guest, Spencer Boyer is a Fellow to the Security and Peace Initiative, which is a joint initiative of the Center for American Progress and the Century Foundation. Spencer is a Term Member of the Council on Foreign Relations. We discuss the ongoing problems in Iraq, the Iraq Study Group and the Bush administration. Then after some technical issues, I talk with a good friend and neuro-intensivist William Coplin, MD. We discuss strokes and AVM’s (check out AVMSurvivors.org) like the one that Senator Johnson was struck with. Finally, we discuss politics with Bill Scher the guru in charge of the blog Liberal Oasis and author of Wait Don’t Move to Canada.

Remember I’m on iTunes and several other podcasting services.
Me? That’s a cop out. Not Jim Webb. Not the guys who started You Tube. Not Kofi Annan who has fought to keep the UN relevant. Not Al Gore who is keeping global warming in the news. I could probably give the thumbs up to bloggers.
Here’s the story.
