Roman Polanski has been arrested on his 32-year old statutory rape charge and is scheduled for deportation to the United States.Miss Megan McArdle, Irish Catholic daughter of immigrants, most of whom fled the potato famine in the 1840s or came over in a great wave at the turn of the century, who would have been looked down upon as a dirty, Popish Johnny-Come-Lately by the Protestants who had been in America for generations, hearkens back to her fake-Puritan ancestry to declare that Europe is too sophisticated and European and immoral and therefore offends her deep, moral, fake-Puritan soul. Why not Catholic morality? Is that not hip enough for her?
The French, too, have forgiven him of course....You would think we'd busted him for unpaid parking tickets. The guy drugged a thirteen year old girl in order to rape her. Perhaps the French have some sophisticated, European point of view on these things that I, with my puritan ancestry, simply cannot rise to. [my bold]
BREAKING!: Damn! I spoke too soon.
