It was fairly distressing to see a bunch of Hollywood celebrities going on record deploring Roman Polanski's arrest for jumping bail during his trial for drugging and raping a 13-year-old. It seems that they forgot that he was unrepentant about the act, or about escaping justice.
It has been much more heartening to see more and more people support his recent arrest, and reaffirming that rape is rape. Three excellent pieces include ones from the Wall Street Journal, Boing Boing, and ill Doctrine. The latter is well worth watching for proof that video (even online video) can carry emotional messages better than typical blog entries.
