We live in the Age of Addiction. Our nation is addicted to oil. Our people are addicted to junk food. And Albany is addicted to secrecy.
Just ask Eliot Spitzer. The man who promised that Day One: Everything Changes is the latest "reformer" to fall victim to secrecy's sway. Maybe we need a 12-step program instead of elections. Or maybe we need to move Albany to a warm-weather state so sunshine can find its dark and dirty corners.
When I said it was my opinion he had given into the Legislature's usual scams of secrecy, he shot back: "I'm the governor of the state. I'll be Lyndon Johnson. I'll craft the deals and I'll get the job done. You will write and I will do. That's why you're there and I'm here."
