Here's another "what ya need to know but probably don't"

I'm going to throw out a name that many people haven't thought of lately: Eliot Spitzer.

Remember him? The disgraced NY Attorney General who paid for a high paid call girl. He was linked with a "prostitution ring". Brought down by an "investigation" into his finances:

"The suspicious financial activity was initially reported by a bank to the IRS which, under direction from the Justice Department, brought in the FBI's Public Corruption Squad. "

The whole thing against him was, to me, a little weird. What, so he was moving money around? How many people with alot of money do that with no repercussions?

Well, there's always more to a story, and now Elliot is talking:

AND, it's almost one year to the date that he fell from grace that the financial system is fallen to pieces because of AIG and their buds at Goldman & Merryl.

There's an old saying that I love by Thomas H. Huxley, an english biologist from the 19th century: "Sit down before fact like a little child, and be prepared to give up every preconceived notion. Follow humbly wherever and to whatever abyss nature leads, or you shall learn nothing."
