Pretty Women

by 3rd Way

Spitzer's career and family was left devastated immediately after his tryste with "Kristen" was announced. Meanwhile "Kristen" is Manhattan's newest millionare.

From New York Magazine:

"The two songs on her Amie Street profile, which each cost 98 cents, have been downloaded more than two million times, and Dupre will recieve 70 percent of the total profit. "

According to my math that works out to more than $1.3 million. Penthouse and Playboy are allegedly both interested in featuring her on their pages. Our culture astounds me sometimes. The stock market slowed when the news broke, the universal condemnation of Spitzer's action was immediate and appropriate, but now we are passively celebrating the other unscrupulous actor in the affair.

Hillary is right. Our media treats the sexes differently. Gender differences are vast, you can't expect them to be dealt with evenhandedily.
