The Best Post I Never Wrote

I normally post on a Wednesday, but I missed yesterday's when I finally succumbed to the dreaded lurgy which has been trying to pull me down since before Senior Management returned from her trip to England.  While not exactly bed-ridden, I've gone through most of the last week or so, barely able to string coherent sentences together for more than a few minutes at a time [nothing new there, I know, but this time I've had an excuse].

I had planned to post something about the (in my opinion) jaw-dropping double standards which certain members of the celebrity/media circle seem to want to apply to Roman Polanski, regarding his fugitive from justice status. 

An excellent blog-entry, full of scathing wit and insightful, wisdomous musings, I'm sure you'd have loved it.  However, scanning through my friends list, I saw that first saycestsay, and then jimhines(who said exactly what I wanted to say, only in a better, smarter way) beat me to the punch, so I gave up.    Instead, I recommend you read both their posts on the subject.  You can find Kelly's here, and Jim's here.

That said, I'm still appalled at the apparent lack of concern about applying justice to a man who drugged a 13-year-old girl, then had sex with her before fleeing the country to avoid jail.

How anyone can defend his actions, beats the heck out of me.
