Tuesday Stuff

One of those days:  errands to take care of, an order to submit for the local coop (which I run), pictures to frame for an upcoming photography exhibit (more on that in a future post), a short story to revise (more on that in a future post).  And so a short blog post.  Just a couple of items:

Saw a pair of wood ducks on the pond near our house yesterday -- a sure sign that spring is nearly here.  Beautiful birds -- look them up in a book or on the web.  It's worth the time.  The male is one of the most stunningly colorful ducks we have in North America, but the female, whose plumage is far less showy, is lovely as well. 

Eliot Spitzer.  I like him.  Had I still lived in New York, I would have voted for him in 2006.  But what an idiot.  Why is it that men in power (or out of power, for that matter) have so much trouble keeping their pants zipped?  Should he resign?  I don't know.  But I have noticed that the same commentators on the right who said that Senator David Vitter (R-Louisiana) should be forgiven for his dalliances with a prostitute, are now saying that Spitzer has to go.  They say hypocrisy is the issue, because Spitzer was such a determined -- some would say self-righteous -- prosecutor.  To which I respond, Yes, but David Vitter has made a career of claiming to support "family values."  Who's the greater hypocrite?

All right; gotta go.
