This issue has been providing me with steady background radiation levels off annoyance for the past week, and this blog post articulated my boggle perfectly:

The reporting on Polanski's arrest has been every bit as "bizarrely skewed," if not more so. Roman Polanski may be a great director, an old man, a husband, a father, a friend to many powerful people, and even the target of some questionable legal shenanigans. He may very well be no threat to society at this point. He may even be a good person on balance, whatever that means. But none of that changes the basic, undisputed fact: Roman Polanski raped a child. And rushing past that point to focus on the reasons why we should forgive him, pity him, respect him, admire him, support him, whatever, is absolutely twisted.

Also not relevant is whether the victim looked older than her 13 years, was hot, or was asking for it (according to testimony not disputed by Polanski, she most certainly was not.) Or whether the victim forgave him, or how many millions of dollars he gave her at civil trial. It is not mean-spirited or petty to demand that he be treated like any non-celebrity who had done something similar.

Wow, just wow

A bit hysterical, but there's some really good information in here. I love the uncompromising demonization of politicians and law enforcement piling on to sex offenders.

Good for Obama

I was hoping someone would tell Jimmy Carter to STFU, and I'm pleased to see it's Obama. CNN and Fox stories linked for lefty and righty versions of same story:

Carter should take a lesson or two in "being presidential."

We did at least 75 miles of dirt today ... It turns out the bike is
more capable than my ass is.

Seen at TWO motorcycle resort. This is not exactly the standard I
encourage at work. It's awesome nonetheless :)

Some random critters at the Durham Museum of Life and Science. The lemurs, sadly, weren't out because it was too cold. Apparently Madagascar is tropical; who knew?
