Ugh. I’ve been away from the computer all day, but while I was having brunch, I happened to overhear a little snippet on the news about Roman Polanski being set free. But I didn’t catch the whole story, so I kind of just crossed my fingers and denied I heard correctly.
No such luck.
After months of the cruel and unusual punishment of being locked in a multi-million dollar Swiss chalet, Polanski has been set free by Swiss officials, who reasoned that Polanski had already served his full sentence. One of Polanski’s lawyers humbly commented, “I’m obviously very happy for Roman…I believe there is much too much pride in the attitude of the American authorities.”
Yay, rape apologism.
