"All In" is the title of the David Petraeus biography, and no book is more aptly titled. His caree is now in a shambles because he made a big, disasterous bet -- having an affair with co-author Paula Broadwell -- and it led to his resignation as CIA director. The affair also sullies the book by Broadwell and Washington Post editor Vernon Loeb, which was highly praised. The prurient may read it, for clues to the Petraeus/Broadwell relationship. But how can anyone else now believe it is an objective account of his personality and leadership?

Paula Deen has just paid the biggest price in the history of the universe for using a bad word. Her network and just about every last business partner have dumped her. The best guess is that her annual income will drop from about $17 million to around $7 million. That's quite a fine. She also has had to grovel to Jesse Jackson for something called "redemption. " Martha Stewart feels sorry for her. And, in a "Today" show appearance that was painful to watch, she had to absorb the too-cool interrogation by Matt Lauer, of all people, while she stuttered and wept and twisted her hanky.

We need to learn to get past these bimbo eruptions. Because if we don't find a way to forgive and move forward, a lot of good people are going to end up on the scrapheap. Gen. David Petraeus is the latest. Perhaps the most brilliant and successful soldier-scholar of his generation, who was remaking the Central Intelligence Agency to face insurgencies and China, resigned last week, admitting he had had an extra-marital affair. An FBI investigation into complaints from a woman that Gen. Petraeus' comely biographer, Paula Broadwell, was threatening her brought to light steamy e mails between the general and his acolyte, herself a West Point graduate who never disguised her adoration for him as a leader and a man. (News reports have has since identified the woman who received the harassing emails as 37-year-old Jill Kelley, a State Department's liaison to the military's Joint Special Operations Command in Tampa.)

Events of the last two weeks have been very tough and sad for all of us as a nation. As a good friend of both Gen. David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell, they have been very hard for me personally as well. Both made big mistakes, and they know it more acutely and profoundly than anyone. Thankfully, the nation knows how great a leader he has been, and that will never be forgotten. But I feel the need to correct the increasingly common and very negative perceptions about her. This is not to deny or excuse any of her mistakes, only to paint a more complete and fair portrait of her as an individual.

Vernon Loeb, the Washington Post editor who worked with Paula Broadwell on the bio of David Petraeus, says he was blind-sided by the affair that ended Petraeus' stint as CIA director. "My wife says I'm the most clueless person in America," he begins in a first-person piece in the Post, describing his involvement in the book "All In. " Loeb says he got involved after a call from his agent about collaborating on a book about Petraeus' leadership. Loeb was a logical choice -- he had embedded with a division under the general's command in 2003, while covering the Pentagon.

OK, I'm done. I've had my fun clicking through every last story, tweet and meme about Betraeusgate. I already know how this movie ends, eventually. Somehow, the men will be fine — time will pass, and they'll get invitations to join corporate boards and speak at management seminars about leadership and motivation. The women? They'll be invited to pose in Playboy. Some things never change, especially sex scandals such as the current one, over the resigned CIA director David Petraeus' affair with his totally "All In" biographer Paula Broadwell.

Like a set of Russian dolls, in which each doll contains a slightly smaller version of itself hidden inside, the sex scandal that forced CIA Director David Petraeus from office last week seems full of secret compartments that have yet to be revealed. Since Friday, we've been deluged with tantalizing details about the affair between Mr. Petraeus, 60, and Paula Broadwell, 40, a former Army officer and married mother of two who published a fawning biography of him this year. But there are still too many pieces of this puzzle that just don't seem to fit. Initial reports indicated that Mr. Petraeus had stepped down after FBI investigators uncovered the relationship between him and Ms. Broadwell while pursuing a complaint about harassing emails sent anonymously to a another woman, Jill Kelley, who was described as a friend of Mr. Petraeus and his wife.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says he was planning this even before the recent scandals in the top ranks of the Pentagon and CIA, but he's ordered the military to double down on ethics training for its senior officers. In a memo to Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Mr. Panetta didn't reference Gen. David Petraeus' affair with his biographer or Gen. John Allen's mountain of "inappropriate" emails to a Tampa socialite - but he didn't have to. And they are not the only brass behaving badly.

When Marine Corps Gen. John R. Allen overheard a platoon of first-year midshipmen at the Naval Academy shout "kill" during training one summer day a decade ago, he ordered the word expunged from their vocabulary. The then-commandant explained that plebe summer, when incoming midshipmen arrive on the yard to acclimatize themselves to academy life and begin preparing for careers as officers in the Navy and Marine Corps, was too early to be thinking about the "kill piece" of military training.

Marine Corps Gen. John Allen, the former commander of the U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan whose nomination to lead NATO was delayed last year while investigators probed his e-mails to a Florida socialite, has retired from the military. The Naval Academy graduate returned to Annapolis a decade ago to serve as commandant of midshipmen. He was the first Marine to hold the second-in-command position. Allen's surprise retirement, announced by the White House on Tuesday, came less than a month after the Pentagon cleared him of wrongdoing in his e-mail correspondence with Tampa socialite Jill Kelley.
