Whom the Gods Destroy

"Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad."

Everyone knows by now the saga that has befallen Eliot Spitzer, the Governor of New York. What you don't know is that both Eliot Spitzer and I went to the same High School in New York - Horace Mann. Until Eliot Spitzer became famous, Horace Mann was known for Marty Whitman, the manager of the Third Avenue Fund and a graduate of the class of 1942.

Eliot Spitzer was the Class of 1977 and I was 1980. When he first became well known a few years back, I dug into my old boxes in the garage and came up with the yearbook from 1977 and found his yearbook page. I posted it years ago on the Internet, as it was my first feeble attempt to make money off Google Ads. The page has been out there for years, but here is the original page, and I also posted the page at the bottom of my blog post.


Eliot Spitzer Senior Page


Look at the last quote on his page.

"The worst thing about political jokes is that some of them get elected."

Indeed.
