Hilarious headlines

You've probably heard by now that former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer will not face any criminal charges in the prostitution scandal that forced him to resign from office eight months ago. Federal prosecutors made the announcement on Thursday.

The downside of working for a newspaper that makes a point of conforming to community standards is that I couldn't put in print any of the headline ideas that were being bandied about the Freeman newsroom after the story broke.

Like "Spitzer gets off."

Or "Spitzer off the hook for being on the hooker."

Oh, well. I guess that's what blogs are for.
