In the scant few days before his sex scandal broke, San Fran Mayor Gavin Newsom attended the Davos conference once again (though probably not on the Google jet this time). Nevertheless, he managed to appear for a Reuters interview in Second Life, which is only slightly more boring to watch than sex in Second Life. Mostly dry fare, though Newsom notes that of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Al Gore, one of those three will not appear in photos with him due to the publicity around Newsom's marrying of gay couples. We're guessing the other two might be steering clear of him for awhile as well. Best quote about Second Life: "Just in case the public gets fed up with the real me, I can point them here." As can we.
