Poor Roman Polanski

Poor Roman Polanski. Buddy gets a 13-year old girl all messed up on Quaaludes and champagne, then sodomizes her, and people get all sniffy about it. Poor Roman is charged, and then to show just what a stand-up type of guy he is, he bolts off to France (France apparently has a slightly more "enlightened" and "sophisticated" view towards raping children than civilized countries do. We silly westerners wouldn't understand, being all "unsophisticated" and all.) Poor Roman has been "in hiding" in France for over thirty years now, living on snails, french-bread, and only the finest wines, unable to trvel to the United States and molest children in peace. One cannot doubt that it has been a grueling journey for poor old Roman.

So now Roman Polanski is cooling his heels in a jail in Switzerland waiting to be extradited to the US to face those old charges and a couple of new ones due to his bugging out (IE: running from justice). With luck he will spend the rest of his life in prison in the US with a complimentary economy sized jug of lube so those hot prison nights won't be as hard on him as he was on that little girl 30 years ago.

A truly bizarre aspect of this situation is that there are those who feel that poor Roman has suffered enough. Having to live in the filth and squalor that is France was punishment enough for on little moral lapse all those years ago. He has paid, they say, oh lordy how he has paid. In fact, many of Hollywood's elite have come forward in defense of raping children. Martin Scorsese, Debra Winger, Woody Allan, Whoopi Goldberg and many others have argued on poor Roman's behalf, and one can almost see their point. Children are hardly important (and thus deserving of a good raping every so often) while Roman has made "important" and "significant" films and so it is obvious that to hold him responsible for some silly little mistake he made back when he was in his youthfully carefree forties is just not right. Poor Roman.

One can imagine that it is only a matter of time before the Roman Catholic church leaps to Romans defense as well, after all the church has a long history of abusing children. They must be full of helpful advise for Roman on how he can get out of this current unpleasantness. Or maybe the church will just suggest that he ride it out, after all they have been for a couple of thousand years now and they are still partying with the kiddies.

If I may put forward a slice of personal philosophy, it is this: Roman and his tub 'o lube should just head off to prison and take it like a man. A whimpering, moaning little man, but still, like a man. Enjoy.

Anyway... Humouroceros
