Quote of the Day - I am overwhelmed by the grace and persistence of my people.
What is the mark of a man? For that matter, what is the mark of a woman? Let's take a man named Eliot and a woman named Kristin, for example.
This post is no piece of investigative journalism, so you'll have to satisfy yourself with news reports of Kristin and her $4,300 per hour price, which I may say is slightly more than I charge by day. I suspect, however, that I'm not as much fun. Verbally, on the other hand...
Admittedly, I want only to take a snapshot of the man from a single perspective: his approach to environmental matters, which tends to be very limiting but perhaps instructive beyond an occasional fault, or more than one fault. Qualifiers aside, let's look:
Back in 2003, he sought to enforce Clean Air Act New Source Review laws. He forced a change to the law. His was an egalitarian approach, at least on paper. Allegedly, he sued the EPA some 15 times over environmental laws. He did not win each time.
There were others who sued, too, and many claim Spitzer made enemies easily, and extorted money from big companies and equally so big government. Many say he made demands without facts. He was a man who many time did not give and who did not take and likewise got in the way.
Time will tell. Even if pollution is a sin.
