Until We Meet Again

So much for the comeback of America's hypocrite:
Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer and his wife are ending their two-decade marriage. 
Spitzer and his wife, Silda Wall Spitzer, issued a statement late Tuesday announcing the split. 
"We regret that our marital relationship has come to an end," the statement reads. 
The couple then said they will not address the subject further.
The subject won't come up again until Eliot Spitzer decides that he deserves the power being denied to him and that he should run for political office. He is addicted to the power and respectability that negates his inability to control his libido. They love this stuff in New York until they feel that someone is just not worth the time or effort. Spitzer doesn't strike the kind of fear that he used to. Without that juice, he's just another washed up old man who keeps trying to wear a hole in his pants.

No Respite For Hucksters

Kevin Trudeau is an American success story. He lied, he stole, he cheated and he would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for the fact that our reckless government is out of control and harbors an intense hatred of success and entrepreneurship. Or, you could look at it realistically and note that a proven liar and fraud should be subjected to an international auditing of all of his bank accounts so that everyone he stole from can have a chance to get their money back.

I guess it depends on whether or not you think a fraudster should be allowed to walk away with the money he has stolen. I do not.

No One Knows What They Are Doing at 27

Congratulations, dingbat. You made it into Time Magazine.

Wait, there is still a Time Magazine? I did not know that.

In any event, the fetishization of lifestyle choices continues to be an American navel-gazing experience. If you don't want to have children, you have that right. This is America. But don't tell me that you have life figured out at the age of 27. Changes will hit you in your life, things will happen, and your decisions can be put into flux at the drop of a hat.

The act of deciding not to have children should be a freedom enjoyed by many and there shouldn't be anything socially unacceptable about it. Plenty of people know they are assholes and they have chosen not to inflict society with their douchebaggery and their assholedness. Good for them. Give them a tax break.

And, just to be clear, when you write about yourself as if you are unremarkable, you are trying to show people how much "different" you are from them because of the act of writing. If you were truly unremarkable, you'd put on a muu muu and tell Time Magazine to go fuck themselves.
