Frank Rich has a terribly harsh essay in yesterday's New York Times on how Tiger Woods sums up this year / decade of illusions and fakery.

He touches on Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction, Enron, Barry Bonds, Eliot Spitzer, Wall Street, Ted Haggard’s megachurch, and more.

Oddly one connection he never makes, even after paragraphs about both Enron's fakery and Accenture's ditching of Woods as spokesperson, is that the two are (albeit tenuously) connected. Accenture had been part of Arthur Andersen, the accounting firm that dissolved due to its role in the Enron scandal.

Either way, it's a fascinating read of what was quite a decade: "Tiger Woods, Person of the Year".
