Silda Edits Eliot’s Slate Columns!


Newly christened Slate columnist Eliot Spitzer is really warming up to his new role as a media professional. Last night, while he was “mingling extensively” at the Website’s holiday party, an Intel tipster overheard him actually discussing his process: “I feel like I’m better at expressing my self through writing than speaking,” he said. “I usually take about an hour to write [a column] and then send it to my wife to edit.” He has not yet adopted the slovenly dress code popular among his peers, however. “I guess I’m the only one here wearing a suit,” another eavesdropper heard him remarking.
