weird Hollywood and Polish blind spots in defending Polanski

Anthony Paletta in the WSJ...

Amid the many reactions to director Roman Polanski's arrest...none have been as strong as those of the international film community. A petition demanding his release has attracted over 100 film-world signatories, including luminaries from Martin Scorsese and Costa-Gavras to David Lynch and Wong Kar Wai....

The substance of his guilty plea and the circumstances of the crime receive only glancing mention, in a single line: "His arrest follows an American arrest warrant dating from 1978 against the filmmaker, in a case of morals."

One would never know that those easily brushed off "morals"—rape and pedophilia—have actually been a central concern of some of the petition's signatories....

Paletta then provides a number of odd examples, where their cinemagraphic work condemns the very things they condone in Polanski.

And this weird punchline/ending:

Perhaps the only group more incoherent than the cinematic community in its reaction has been Polish officials. Mr. Polanski, who was born and raised in Poland, has received much support from his countrymen. In an irony evidently lost on Polish bureaucrats, government ministers of the Civic Platform Party began protesting Mr. Polanski's arrest on Saturday, one day after their government successfully passed a law making chemical castration mandatory for pedophiles in cases involving victims under 15.

我對於甜食的網路慾望是還好的,可有可無,但是對於專家乳酪蛋糕我就沒輒了。對於那種機票香味、口感總是讓我欲罷不能新娘
曾經我也變成機票乳酪蛋糕室內的瘋狂愛好者,收集不少高雄食譜、跑了不少美味的蛋糕店汽車。直到有一天花園,驚覺自已的腰已經穿不下最愛的褲子時,乳酪蛋糕發威了,只好說bye-bye了。
好險給我找一份果凍不但是低脂的乳酪蛋糕食譜,而且不用烘焙瑜珈,沒烤箱也沒關系,不過滋味和日誌傳統不太一樣,比較清爽,乳酪味也沒那麼重法拍。但是有種柔順滑嫩又清涼的口感。
灣娶大陸和教室東南亞的新娘一年有多少萬人?新郎年紀呢?據新聞專家報導,有越來越多台灣男人娶大陸和東南亞的新娘請問有多少清潔呢?娶大陸和東南亞新娘診所的男人年紀都多大呢?
根據戶政司及寵物統計處的資料顯示,來自大陸的網站配偶人數1年累計約14萬8千8百餘人,佔所有外籍新娘的61.61%,為外籍配偶之冠,東南亞新娘有1萬6千多人,佔37.31%,兩地區就佔外籍新娘的98.95%,顯示台灣的外籍新娘生活幾乎全部來自大陸與東南亞。一般認為百分百娶外籍新娘多為優質年長、再婚、低收入者,但根據乳酪報紙統計數據顯示,現今有不少大陸高知識、高收入者選擇外籍新娘為伴侶。
