When Mistresses Were Coy


(As they apparently were.) Odd to see the word “mistress” getting such an airing. Surely it implies something more settled than the flings, trysts, & assignations Tiger Woods has been having. Perhaps we have reverted to the old schoolboy-joke definition: “The person you find between a mister and a mattress.”

As for Tiger’s preference for leggy white blondes, there are deep human inclinations at work here, boldly explored by Steve Sailer in a famous National Review article — the one that earned Steve a lifetime ban from the Angry Asian Males summer clambake.
