Word is that crazy news about New York's governor is coming down the Times pike in the possibly very near future. (DéjÃ vu, anyone?) The Daily News' Liz Benjamin hears: "The rumor mill has been running overtime in recent weeks about Paterson and the possibility that a major newspaper is about to drop a bombshell story about his personal life that will be far worse than his acknowledged extramarital affair with a former state employee." And Observer media reporter John Koblin says: "anyone hearing about NYT bombshell on Paterson?" Don't you love Fridays? As a counterpoint: don't expect this to be as mindblowing as the Spitzer thing. For one thing, I mean, well, our standards with Paterson are kind of low. Also, we hear we might have to wait a while. The life of Mr. Paterson is a complicated thing to unravel, apparently!
