Spitzer Scandal

Spitzer was caught up in a prostitution scandal yesterday and I watched him apologize to the public with his wife at this side. Now the stories on CNN are asking "if" it will doom his career. I am amazed that after a scandal, these questions are asked. Shouldn't the question be when he will resign vs. if this will effect his political ambitions. It seems that now a days with the quality of politicians everywhere, these scandals are considered almost a pre-requisite to be in office :)

As I told my wife, GW Bush has set the bar so low, that now a scandal like this is almost welcome..I rather see this than what has happened in the past 8 years...

to major or not to major

My cousin (who shall be unnamed) sent out an email to the clan asking for advice on which second major to choose...got me thinking...when i got into college for my undergraduate studies, we didn't have a choice...what one did was decided for us by the very fact of which college and which program we got into...Is it better to have a lot of choice or not have a choice at all...perhaps in some cases its better to have a limited choice :-)
This goes for all things in our lives...we have too many choices which results in an inability to make decisions or the wrong decisions because we are fed up of the options...

I wonder how companies are dealing with this...as they come up with new products, are they studying the impact of too many choices on the consumer spending habit? How can they attract consumers when there is so much choice...whats the differentiating factor??

Some links to articles of talking about too many choices that I just googled :-)

First Post and I aint got nuthing to say!

Hello World! This is my first blog post and honestly right now I got nuthing to say to you all. I was kinda bored and decided to check out this "blogging" phenomenon. Seems to be something that a lot of people are into and so if I have to keep up with the crowd, I guess I got to do it. Anyways I think I will do this for a bit and see what I can come up with. Cheers for now. Be well.
