Eliot Spitzer and The Wire

I hate to make light of this (actually, I enjoy it), but when I heard today about NY Gov Spitzer being involved in a prostitution ring, in Washington, DC no less, I couldn't help thinking that Lester Freamon became "police" again, and that's what he moved on to...

That's what I thought when I saw the first report on CNN online. But when I further heard that Spitzer got nabbed for this on a wiretap...

This may the real life coda - epilogue - of The Wire. The ultimate spill-over into reality...

Thanks, HBO, for this extra episode (maybe even a new season)...

(Ok, I admit to not liking Spitzer, ever since his unconstitutional payola witch hunt a few years ago ... Ever notice how government officials who yelp the most loudly about morality and victimless crime seem to always be involved in some themselves?)
