My morning BART-MUNI ride was consumed by reading about every salacious detail of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer's procurement of the services of a high-priced call girl last month.
Obviously he should resign, for the good of his family, the good of his party, and the health of his state.
Of all the details about how he did it, this one stood out to me: Spitzer used the alias "George Fox" while booking the room for his secret rendezvous at the Mayflower Hotel.
First I thought that Spitzer chose "George Fox" randomly. Well, it turns out that a good friend of Spitzer's is named George Fox. This shows how far Spitzer was willing to go not to get caught: if the tides had broken another way, an innocent man named George Fox could have had his career destroyed. And the ever-so-virtuous governor of New York would have been the first to express outrage.
