    Former teen who had sex with Polanski writing book

    That's the headline folks. A 13 year old girl was drugged and raped by a 43 year old man and it is now known merely as having sex with a former teen.

    I await the NOW outrage, the call from the President, the...nevermind, no I don't.
    Be Not Afraid.

    Interesting fact:

    The mother of Polanski's victim is Susan Gailey, whom Washingtonians would remember as the Ourisman Chevrolet girl.

    "You always get your way, at Ourisman Chevrolet!
    We're the #1 dealer with the #1 deal
    A brand new Chevy get behind the wheel
    With service, selection, and credit while you wait
    Come down to Ourisman, and drive one home today!
    Oh, you always get your way, at Ourisman Chevrolet!"

    I don't know why Yahoo gave the story such a stupid headline.


    Rape is rape. I hope Polanski travels to the wrong country and ends up getting extradited back to LA to serve his time, which was a pretty lenient sentence given the severity of the crime.

    It was pretty lenient, but because of the flight and the changes in the law, he'd be looking at much more jail time. What was disgusting was the number of people in Hollywood who came out in support of him. Compare that to the outrage among Hollywood types when Elia Kazan got his Lifetime Achievement Award. Raping a child doesn't bother celebrities, but naming communists who were trying to Stalinize our entertainment industry is beyond the pale.

    The comments on the story are on fire about the title of this. I'm honestly suprised Yahoo hasn't changed it yet.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    While not excusing the headline, this might explain it.

    but later accepted a plea bargain whose terms included dismissal of five of the initial charges[4] in exchange for a guilty plea to the lesser charge of engaging in unlawful sexual intercourse.

    Sounds like the legal department may have written the headline.
