[Marxism] Polanski

I've been reading this list on and off for a while now and have to say 
that I can't believe the amount of bandwidth that has been wasted 
discussing Roman Polanski.  Why aren't you all discussing McKenzie 
Phillip's incestuous relationship with her father, too?  I personally 
could care less what happens to Polanski since the question of innocence 
or guilt has already been answered by Polanski himself.  His credentials 
do not excuse him from prosecution, nor should he be dealt with 
differently in terms of sentencing because of his Hollywood profile.  My 
point is, what the hell does this have to do with Marxism beyond a 
passing interest?  It certainly doesn't deserve the three-five days of 
debate among supposed Marxists that has already occurred on this list.
