And Just One More Thing

One of my astute readers called me out big time on my Roman Polanski post.
To clarify my position, Roman Polanski is scumbag, who not only got away with statutory rape, he went on to marry one of the most beautiful actresses in France, Emmanuelle Beart, or rather "she of the perpetual pubescent poutiness", make millions from his films and have an altogether charmed life.

And in spite of what these people think, I do support extraditing Polanski and introducing him to the inmate population of a California prison.
It's just that after I've witnessed the California court system in action, (anyone remember OJ?) I question the courts ability to actually get this pedophile behind bars.
Also, if you haven't read Ann Althouse's take down of Bernard Henri Levy, you should.
Digg this

The more people come to his support, the more pissed off I get. There can't be one law for French directors and another law for everyone else.

I have to admit, I know nothing about the whole Roman Polanski scandal. I wasn't born until the late 80s, so it's fairly a mystery to me - all I ever hear is Lolita. :/

Polanski married Emanuelle Seigner (not Beart) in 1989. They have two children.

Duchesse, I caught my mistake and corrected it in my next post.
How old are Polanski's kids now.
Also, I ran into Polanski and Seigner in Christian Dior in Paris in the late 90s. She was stunning, he was creepy.
