Tiger & Bully

Tiger managed to look like the old Tiger in his win at Bay Hill yesterday--no mistakes, no nerves showing, no gimping along on bad wheels. And he'll probably be one of two favorites at the Masters, the other being Rory. Hey, look out the window! Here comes the wagon, and the band's on the back. Climb aboard. There's room for all.

Some recent controversy about two films, The Hunger Games and Bully, Hunger Games with a PG13 rating and Bully with an R. The Hunger people were very careful not to get the R because of their target audience for the film, toning down some of the violence in the book to insure that all the young fans of the novel series would be able to see the movie. The Bully people shot themselves in the foot by retaining some of the F-bombs, thus gaining the R rating, thereby losing the very audience at which the film is directed. Why not simply bleep the expletives and get back to a PG13? The young kids are certainly familiar with all the F-bombs you can lob at them, and they'd be able to read the bleeps just as adults would. Any school district that silently condones bullying by tch tching that "boys will be boys" ought to have its doors closed.
