Lesson of the Day

It seems to me that the truly important violations of the public trust are when the power we give our government officials is sold, rather than what government officials choose to buy. Yet our political scandals are too often dominated by private mistakes, rather than public misdeeds. This is why I’m more worried about what the SEC is selling than what Eliot Spitzer has been buying.
