E-Mail of the Week
Although an avid reader of the times and your column, I have never written in. After reviewing your column in Sundays paper, I felt compelled to say thank you. It seems as though if you have money, fame and power, you have to play by no rules. I was and remain disgusted at anyone who defends Mr. Polanski and his cowardly efforts to escape justice in the U.S. I don't know him, never really heard of him other than this case and quite frankly it wouldn't matter if I did.
I've read about his crime and he should pay. I wonder if the same people who are defending him would defend a murderer who was able to escape the law for more than 20yrs.
It's almost like crime has an expiration (date). Has everyone forgotten this guy took a plea and then disappeared in the night like the coward he's continuing to show himself to be.
Here's a suggestion, how about finally taking real responsibility for your crimes and do the time.
But again, a heart felt thank you for your ariticle. I find your articles to be both heart felt and enlightening.
Side note, has anyone ever told you you resemble Bob Knight?

Thanks for reading and the note.
As for my resemblence to Bobby Knight, I have only been told that once... by a referee at whom I threw a chair.
