Time & Tiger

I read in this week’s Time Magazine that David Simon, CEO of Simon Property Group, made $44,000 an hour. That’s $733.33 a minute. That’s $12.22 a second. How can that be and, more importantly, why should that be? David Simon, don’t you feel a little silly? Shouldn’t you feel a little silly? With over 8% unemployment, with poverty all around, with children living without a home or proper nourishment, how can David Simon justify a salary of $137 million a year? And how can the GOP continue to say the top 1% shouldn’t have a tax increase? Come on, Tea Partiers and Mitt Romney, let’s get real.

Tiger had another magic moment Sunday afternoon, what Jack Nicklaus said was one of the greatest shots he’d ever seen. I think later Jack amended that to “the greatest shot he’d ever seen.” A dangerous pitch from deep rough to a downhill pin on the par-3 sixteenth, with water just past the pin . . . and it died into the cup for a most unlikely birdie to give him a one shot lead. Another Tiger moment to go with all the others. Now, he’s the favorite to win the U.S. Open in two weeks. And poor Rickie Fowler, who shot an 84 final round, now knows what it’s like to be in the eye of the Tiger.
