Tiger Woods on the cover of Vanity Fair…

Wow… this story will not stop.  As I understand it, the photos in this issue were taken years ago (by Annie Leibovitz) so it seems the only winners here are the magazine and the photographer (’cause Tiger is keeping a low profile these days).

I’ve always thought Leibovitz’s work was nothing if not striking.  But artistry aside, it’s been interesting to check out the debates in the blogosphere about the issues of race and the portrayal of black men that this image represents… or not.

What say you…?
