With the media abuzz with the revelations about New York Governor Eliot Spitzer's activities, there's been little else to write about. It is said that the great or near great quite often sow the seeds of their own destruction. What I find ironic is Spitzer's downfall was brought about by a banking computer program the then New York Attorney General insisted banks in New York install to help track suspicious financial transactions. The program ended up tracing numerous small payments he made to to an escort service, the regular transactions triggering a flag that informed investigators 'something funny' was going on in the Governor's personal expenditures.
Very few will end up crying any tears over Spitzer's plight. Many who felt his wrath, rightly or wrongly, will undoubtedly delight at his downfall.
Now if we could only do something about Representative Henry Waxman (D-CA), known as one of the most intolerant and petty Congressmen serving in Washington.
