Oscar's Blood-Red Carpet Beckons
"Why Does Hollywood Adore This Sex Offender?" headlines Adams'
article, which notes about Polanski that "the old boy's been a good
servant to Los Angeles, propping up the film industry and the legal
profession, which provide the city with its two main sources of
income." Adams, who incorrectly claims Polanski was convicted of rape
(he pled guilty to a lesser charge and fled the country before
sentence was passed), should lighten up and enjoy the sheer nuttiness
that Hollywood and the Oscar season offer. Exhibit A is the above
video of last year's zany red-carpet antics by a man we truly adore, Gary Busey.
