The Untitled Eliot Spitzer Film was shown Saturday night at the Tribeca Film Festival before a nearly full auditorium that included some of New York's leading figures. Notably absent were Eliot Spitzer and Ashley Dupre.
To understand the way Albany thinks, look to the trial of the ex-Senate majority leader, who seems to think the feds are persecuting him. "I wasn't a terrorist," he protests. That neatly sums up his good points.
It's hard to believe anyone with leadership and public spirit would be willing to hang around Albany. Cynicism and despair aren't going to get us anywhere, but there are days when you find it hard to feel anything else.
