I’m Having Chest Pains


Governor Spitzer has resigned. Necessary. Inevitable. Sad.

But I really may not survive all the lemmings now swarming all over  cable news — the teletherapists, the experts, the columnists, the whole  pseudoexpertocracy — who have already started providing detailed remedies for the saving the Spitzer marriage and  for what he should say to his children.

These “crisis-vultures” — armed with glib instant analyses — never cease to amaze. One person’s and one state’s tragedy becomes someone else’s shameless career opportunity.
