    I don’t care for or against Tiger Woods or for his skill (placing a ball into a hole – “un trou de balle” en Français (!) but this American concept of apologetic laundry performed in public through “confession” and likely absolution reeks of something called superstition. It is as if apology were supposed to wipe out all misdeeds, in other words to cancel the past and culprits could start again with a new virginity. So we see the present Pope, previously Grand Inquisitor, apologizing for the Inquisition and also for the church mistreatment of women through the ages – thousands of them burned as witches (far more than men prosecuted for the same thing). It’s a good thing Hitler is dead. If alive, he might be “apologizing” for Auschwitz and other such places. Following which some characters would conclude that it’s all over, we should forget it and everybody “gotta move on.”
