The New York Times talks to several women with whom Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) sent lewd photos to online and concludes "in each case Mr. Weiner's online conduct in many ways mirrored that of his offline life -- he was aggressive, blunt, feisty and willing to push boundaries with an apparent disregard for the possible consequences
How many other politicians and business leaders does that description apply to?
All of Wall Street?
Every investment banker?
The entire real estate sector?
Countless other politicians, media heads and self-promoters?
Seems to me we live in a society that rewards people for being aggressive, blunt, feisty and willing to push boundaries with an apparent disregard for the possible consequences.
If you're thoughtful, careful, considerate, and unwilling to push boundaries or act with an apparent disregard for the consequences, you don't get very far in the world of politics, media or business these days.
Maybe that's a problem, eh?
