Cheers and jeers

JEERS - To political theater. Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner are running for elected positions in New York state. We are sure you are well aware of their comeback campaigns. As non-New York City residents, we don't have to make a decision to vote nay or yea for either candidate. As New York state residents, we are, or should be, very interested in our governor's opinion of the political scene. When asked by a CBS reporter to comment on the two individuals' political return, Gov. Cuomo stated, "It's great political theater. It's part of the charm of New York. We tend to have the eccentric. We tend to have the entertaining. And this is a little political theater, and I think that's all people think of it. I don't think they think anything more of it." Governor, you failed to take an opportunity to encourage integrity as a characteristic for an elected official. If it's theater you like, watch for the next show starring "Carlos Danger."
