Down The Memory Ho!

Mayflower Hotel’s Room #871 “magically disappears”.

(Found via the swanky virtual lodgings of Execupundit. And yes, I apologize profusely for the staggeringly cheap pun in the above headline.)

Update: For a much more serious look at the real cost of Elliot Spitzer, long before the Emperor’s Club and Room #871 became a household name and number, read Roger Kimball’s “Spitzer and the army of born-again Leninists“. It links to this Arnold Kling article, but Spitzer’s power, and his attraction to Manhattan liberals who allowed him carry on demonizing Wall Street is also a reminder of another, older piece by Kling.
