The most important press conference in the history of man (apparently) will be televised on all major networks, and on YouTube at 11am ET. Don't miss it (you probably won't be able to).
Tiger Woods is getting "raw" in a never-before-seen pre-scandal Annie Leibovitz shot.
"In the end it was the age-old clash of image versus reality, the compartmentalization of two different lives that inevitably merge at some certain point, whoever you are. He exhibited the same superhuman confidence off the golf course that he exhibited on it, apparently convinced he would never be caught despite the stupid sloppiness at the end—text messages, voice-mail messages. He deluded himself into thinking he could be something that he wasn’t: untouchable. The greatest feat of his career is that he managed to get away with it for so long in public, the bionic man instead of the human one who hit a fire hydrant."
And as long as we're on the topic, FOX News' Brit Hume says that for Woods to recover from all this he needs to switch from Buddhism to Christianity, AFTER THE JUMP...

There's debate as to whether it was Tiger Woods himself, a sound guy, or someone with an iPhone iFart application near a microphone on the 18th hole of the Buick Open, but Woods, his caddie Steve Williams, and viewers were clearly amused when some breaking wind interrupted the journey to his fourth win of the season.
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
Some brand placement from the Human Rights Campaign can be seen in a new commercial from Orbitz travel in which a group of golfers is interrupted by an Orbitz representative who presents them with checks for the savings they earned booking with the travel company.
Neither the group's name nor any mention of the word "gay" is present in the ad but the recognizable HRC logo is prominently featured on one golfer's shirt (we'll have to assume that's the stealth gay guy's golf bag with the rainbow towel hanging on it).
"Orbitz reached out to HRC and asked to license use of our logo on the shirt in the ad," HRC's Director of Media Relations Brad Luna told Towleroad in an email, "And since Orbitz is a company that has a strong history of reaching out to the LGBT community and has a perfect 100% on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Corporate Equality Index, we allowed them to use that shirt."
Watch the spot, AFTER THE JUMP...

Brisbane, Australia's gay, Aboriginal, and civil libertarian communities to march against Pope Benedict tomorrow: "We are protesting against the Pope's anti-queer, anti-abortion, anti-condom stance. The Pope is an extremely powerful and influential figure, who has called homosexuality 'an intrinsic moral evil', has said that abortion rights are a 'new holocaust', and who tells those in the midst of the HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa that contraception and sex education support a 'culture of death'."
Scores of Methodist ministers in California putting careers on the line to officiate same-sex weddings: "The pastors could lose their jobs and clerical credentials in the church, the nation's second-largest Protestant denomination. Ministers in Santa Monica, Claremont, Walnut Creek and other cities have already performed ceremonies for gays and lesbians or are planning to do so. In addition, 82 retired pastors in Northern California signed a resolution in June offering to perform such weddings on behalf of ministers who feel they can't do so themselves."

Participants at the Anglican Lambeth Conference will be invited to take a walk on the gay side: "Peterson Toscano, who is also booked for the Edinburgh Festival and the Greenbelt Christian arts festival this summer, promises good humour and topicality when he takes to the stage at the Keynes Lecture Theatre at the University of Kent on Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 July 2008, starting at 8pm. The lively theatrical performance activist will share his own spiritual story and experience, liberally sprinkled with excerpts from a play that tells how he survived the 'ex-gay' movement which has been encouraged in some Christian circles - 'Doin' Time in the Homo No Mo Halfway House'. The performances will also include a 'question and answer' session."

Al Gore to make ' moon shot' challenge on environment: "Just as John F. Kennedy set his sights on the moon, Al Gore is challenging the nation to produce every kilowatt of electricity through wind, sun and other Earth-friendly energy sources within 10 years, an audacious goal he hopes the next president will embrace...'I have never seen an opportunity for the country like the one that's emerging now,' Gore told The Associated Press in an interview previewing a speech on global warming he planned to give Thursday in Washington."

H&R Block offers $100 coupons or free TaxCut software to gay couples their software blocked from filing online: "Connecticut taxpayers Jason Smith and Settimio Pisu and the ACLU sent a demand letter last March to Block asking the tax preparer to stop penalizing gay couples because the software in use then didn’t support Connecticut civil union returns. Filers who encountered that problem were asked to contact a Block tax service office for help, for which higher fees were charged."
