How low can a peeping Tom go?

ESPN's Erin Andrews is a well respected reporter often assigned to sideline duty for college football & basketball games. She's also very attractive, and, as revealed on Monday, the victim of a weaselly peeping Tom who took nude pictures of her on his camera phone and posted them on the internet.

That's not the worst of it, though. While ESPN has seen to it that the video has been deleted from YouTube, Google, et al, that hasn't stopped computer hackers from making copies and attaching viruses, luring in unsuspecting, curiosity seekers with promises of seeing Ms. Andrews in her birthday suit. Unsurprisingly, the New York Post decided to make this a page 1 article in today's editions. The New York Daily News, on the other hand, opted not to do so, finding more compelling and important issues to front their editions.

Obviously, the perverted voyeur who started this mess won't come forward because he thinks he hasn't done anything wrong. Guess again, slick. All they have to do is pinpoint the exact angles of the camera shots, and you're busted, pal.

Of course, if there is a lesson for Ms. Andrews to gain from this sad episode, it's that she may be well served to close the window curtains in every room in the house before something like this happens again.
