26. If this has caused them hand-wringing, they might want to engage in some self-reflection.

Sounds like a lot of drumming up of drama.

And, my outrage hasn't been found after 30 years.

I stayed out of this Polanski thing for days after the arrest. I tend to come here to talk about stuff that affects and defines society at large -- like elected officials and policy.

What compelled me to finally -- and heartily weigh in (sans "rage," as you assume) is the very loud contingent of apologists on this board that have used every page in the book to argue against this arrest -- including the false premise that somehow this arrest of a child rapist who fled justice will somehow squash free speech or other civil liberties.

It's a bogus argument. No matter what labels you try to smack to those who call you on it or the way you spin it.

And as far as my involvment in film festivals or other cultural events, you have no idea what you are talking about. Don't assume, as well, you make an ass out of u and me!
