When the Anthony Weiner scandal was in the news, all my friends were saying, “What was he thinking?” We’re not a group of holier-than-thous who have never done something wrong; but as my tourist from nowhere says, “GEEZ!” It’s really interesting to think what these men are thinking. What are the psychological components of these situations that lead an intelligent, accomplished man down this path? Sometimes it seems they must just be lonesome — not an excuse for their actions; but look, it seems they all spent days, weeks away from family, wives, their long-time close friends and communities. Oh, who knows — they probably don’t even know why they did what they did. And neither do I.
