Mathis seems to hit all the marks of bad conspiracy smithing, identical twins, every athlete/performer at the top level was never any good, evil tenuous families trees with people being related to people who probably have changed their names, people who get rich and famous are all managed/operatives, etc. Granted, Tiger Woods could somehow be linked in somehow, somewhere to a deeper agenda, (I don't think anyone every doubted he was his dad's own private experiment) but good lord Mathis seems to just have a template he uses for everyone (have only read the Dylan, Elvis & Woods pieces). And really does one need enhancement drugs to excel/cheat at golf? Would they even work? Wouldn't an electro magnetic remote controlled golf ball just be easier?

Maybe not "steel myself" but I'd welcome a discussion, especially as we're really balancing one man's reputation against a world of hurt and deception, aren't we? In a way, I'm grateful to Mathis for spray-painting the whole arena -- that way nobody gets too wounded in the general mayhem. If this is the way the music business was set up, after all, there's nothing to fear and everything to gain from disclosure.
@ Cordelia: good idea.. let me think about that.
I'm confused, utterly, are you actually saying you are concerned about Cohen's reputation?
