News Diary: You Be The Spitzer Scandal Headline Writer

As we expected, the Eliot Spitzer sex scandal is big news in many U.S. newspapers this morning, but especially in New York. Here’s a sampling of the lead headlines about Spitzer, once dubbed Eliot Ness because of his anti-corruption campaigns:

*”Eliot Mess”/Niagara Gazette
*”Spitzer on the Brink”/Syracuse Post-Standard
*”Fall From Grace”/Buffalo News and the Middletown Times Herald-Record
*”’Mr. Clean’ Soiled”The Hackensack Record

Question: Can you write a better Spitzer headline?
