Eliot Spitzer (NY Gov who resigned) saw the hooker on February 13th… The news report said that February 13th is known as the unofficial National Mistress Day.
Which made me think of the wretchedness of the situation – what is so sad about the Spitzer case is that, in the end, it seemed he had no friends. Is it a case of “how you judge others is how you will be judged”?
I guess if you never show mercy to people, understand their weaknesses or have compassion (which is not the same as making excuses or enabling), then chances are you will not receive mercy when you need it most.
Because, guaranteed, we all need mercy at some point.
