Spitzer

Eric Burdon and the AnimalsOver at Corrente they are playing “House of the Rising Sun”, by Eric Burdon and the Animals – which is appropriate, if you think about it:

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I’m one

What a dummy. What was he thinking? And … more importantly … even if you are filthy rich, like Eliot Spitzer, how can you justify paying several thousand dollars on at least 7 or 8 occasions for a call girl? I mean, didn’t the Pope just come out with a whole new list of cardinal sins? Wasn’t “Contributing to widening divide between rich and poor” amongst them? Wait a minute! Maybe Spitzer was actually involved in an elaborate form of wealth redistribution? Maybe it wasn’t so bad after all?
