Well, the New Year got off to a bad start for Hog fans. That and other topics welcome here.

Here's one from the swearing in of Eliot Spitzer as New York governor.

Mr. Spitzer’s first executive order prohibited state workers at public agencies and authorities from accepting gifts of more than nominal value and prohibited the use of state property, including vehicles, computers and telephones, for non-official business. And in what seemed to be a reference to the scandal that led to the resignation of former Comptroller Alan G. Hevesi, the order said that individuals authorized by their agencies to use vehicles for personal purposes “shall keep records of such use, and the value of such personal use shall be calculated and reported as personal income.”

The same order also prohibited nepotism in hiring and contracting and barred former state workers from lobbying their former agencies for two years.
