What Happened to Shame?

The two recent stories we’ve done on embarrassing politicians led us to a question. What happened to shame? Kevin White is just beyond the pale. Blumenthal is now pedestrian by modern standards when it comes to shamelessness. Why / how can these people continue to stay at their jobs and conduct business as usual? We would be mortified and would crawl under a rock somewhere.

Lack of shame is not left to solely the politician these days. Athletes, businessmen, clergy, etc… all suffer from lack of dignity, foresight and ethics. No one is truly ashamed anymore. They may profess shame when caught, but if they truly understood it, they would not have to admit it in the public eye.
