I'm not concerned about the future of infidelity. It's in great shape and will thrive as long as there is marriage, because it's as old and venerable and inexorable an institution as the wedlock on which it depends. What does concern me -- what is in jeopardy -- is privacy.

Much of the reporting on now-former CIA Director David Petraeus has been filled with factual detail. But a piece on the front page of the same day's Boston Globe, modeled another side of journalism -- the ugly practice of protecting anonymous cheap shots.

"Never have an affair with anyone who has less to lose than you do." That should cover hookers who don't play golf when you are the Greatest Golfer who ever lived. It should reverberate in the halls of Congress when congressmen are contemplating another kind of congress. But it doesn't.
