A scandal that should not have been

Ladies and Gentleman,

I have returned after another long hiatus. It seems that life has a nasty habit of getting in the way of writing.

I did wish to comment on the scandal of Anthony Weiner. Unlike many other politicians in recent memory, (including certain republican presidential candidates) Mr. Weiner did not have a physical relationship outside of his marriage. He did not father any bastard children. He didn't even receive a kiss for his troubles. He is simply a man that decided to flirt with women online and sent compromising images of himself along with online flirtation. Was this stupid? Perhaps. Was this a noteworthy scandal? Not really. However it is likely to be something that we hear more of as years pass.
