    The problem with this kind of journalism is that it forgets to ask--what would you do in the same position. Most of us aren't tested, because we don't have the same level or responsiblity in our lives. People in high places, rabbis, judges, and others well, stuff happens, and it takes a lot of intestinal fortitutude to say, "I messed up". The fact is that many younger rabbis, Orhtodox and otherwise, as bright as they are, urn away from career ladders, because they realize at one point there will be one oops too many. Not just rabbis. Our benighted Prez was heaped with honors by some journalists, and yet other journalists weren't so kind. Is that what Peres deserved. After all the gossip that surroinded his political career, the personal thing, unsoweiter, and he could have sti back at home taking telephone calls for "advice" sub rosa. Remeber, our Sages tell us, the higher your postition in the community, the more vulnerable to the Yetzer HaRa, and you are judged more strictly than an ordinary person. Yeah, he messed up, but if anyone of us were in his place, what wold we do?
