TORONTO - Not unlike the war zone created by explosive allegations at Toronto City Hall, it’s also difficult to determine in the world of fun and games which is the actual business of buffoonery — the media or the subjects they cover.

You decide for yourself on the first matter, but for reasons of this space, we shall turn our attention to the subject of Sergio Garcia’s now-infamous “fried chicken” remark about Tiger Woods.

For a while, the rivalry between Garcia and Woods was entertaining after it was recharged at the Players Championship, but it turned sinister when Garcia, intentionally or not, introduced racial stereotypes and crossed a line.

Garcia deserved the backlash he got and Woods was correct when he tweeted that the comment was “wrong, hurtful and clearly inappropriate.”
