Who Needs Curriculum When You’ve Got New York?

In Marriage, Politics, Westminster on March 18, 2008 at 10:43 am

Last Monday, I started a unit with my ethics classes on the seventh commandment (“You shall not commit adultery”). For those watching the news cycle of late, you know that last Monday was the beginning of the whole Eliot Spitzer downfall and, as of yesterday, the disclosure of sexual dalliances by his replacement, David Patterson.

The events of the past ten days have made for some timely case studies with my students in our discussions of marriage. That said, I’ll be interested to get their responses tomorrow to this article in today’s New York Times that (once again) writes off such indiscretions as nothing more than naturalistic determinism.
