Eliot Spitzer (Off-Topic)
For those of you out of contact with local American politics (if New York State can be considered "local") the really big news has been the disgrace and fall of Eliot Spitzer, former governor of New York who resigned yesterday amidst a maelstrom of sex scandals involving prostitution, procurement, and every manner of corruption, fraud, depravity and disloyalty that one could possibly imagine. A writer of fiction would not make up such a tale on grounds it was too incredible.
Lawrence Auster has a home page full of discussion on this mind-boggling story. Here is an exceptionally lucid discussion he had with his readers who among other things debate the issue of "sickness" versus "evil".
I couldn't help noticing that one of his readers brings up the case of Nicolas Sarkozy and his own sexual misadventures.
You will also learn about the lieutenant governor, David Patterson, blind from birth, who takes over the reigns of governorship for the next three years.
