  7. Sad for those who truly suffer with the disorder. Think all poets and writers do in a some form--to write from different perspectives and place ourselves in other's shoes. Very cleverly written, captured a lot in few words.

  19. Helen Ma'am,
    Winning Takes Care of Everything! Yes, I've read about it. Apparently it might send wrong signals to the young. But Nike denies it, saying these have been Tiger's words even before anyway! Well I suppose everyone supports a winner and the reverse is true as well. Tag Heur withdrew their sponsorship immediately when the sex tryst happened in 2009. Ah Well nobody wants to support a loser then.
