Scott's Tip Of The Day: As you may know, Roman Polanski, director of such films as Chinatown and The Pianist, was arrested in Switzerland yesterday on statutory rape charges. Specifically, he was charged with having sex with a 13-year-old girl. The United States has been trying to arrest him since 1977, but Polanski has mostly kept to countries that do not have extradition treaties with the United States. He slipped up when he entered Switzerland for an awards ceremony.
Whoopi Goldberg, doesn't feel that Roman Polanski should be tried, however. Goldberg expressed her view, that statutory rape isn't "rape-rape." Apparently serving a 13-year-old girl champagne and feeding her Quaaludes, is not rape-rape. Perhaps it's just another Saturday night at the Goldberg house? So what's my tip of the day? Those of you who watch The View should probably find another place to get your advice. Scott's Tip Of The Day, perhaps.
