“is she "really" uninsured? Even IF she
were able to get coverage,most likely it would be unaffordable high.
Who denies health care for an underweight child.It seems illegal .There is no such thing as uninsured and there is no such thing as insured these days.Half the time being "insured" is no better than uninsured..
My dream is to the see the day Bureaucracy and profit-mongering will be eradicated from this planet.”

“I just learned there is a school of music in Afghanistan ,where the students,male and female,are learning how to play instruments.Violins,clarinets,you name it.They say they will have a symphony orchestra in 8 to ten years. I say it will happen much sooner. :)”

“wow one music school in a burnt out building with one set of drums and three trumpets. I'd be happy to contribute to bring the kids to the US and enroll in school here where the girls would be burqa free and the boys could be deprogrammed from the madrassas.

Regardless of how many musicians are trained, they are not worth one more life of a soldier. Period.”

Why Not a Department of the Ocean?

Commented Oct 7, 2009 at 10:45:51 in Green

“we don't need a department of oceans.We need only sound environmental policies and the utilization of environmental orgs we already have in place.The cost would be unnecessary and would take away from much needed government programs already in place.Of course if we did not need such a huge kill budget-oh I mean war budget-we might not have to have this sad conversation.We could have all kinds of good and progressive departments.However,we do have resources and means in place that we should and could make better use of-meaning a congress that doesn't cater to corporations and anti-environmentalists.”

“No...they become extinct.

If they are not commodities, then there is no reason for their existence. They can't be 'freed'...they're not suited to life in the wild.

Same goes for every DOMESTICATED farm animal...save, I guess, the wild equivalents of some that already exist (boars, wild turkeys, bison/water buffalo, game hens, rams).

So you see, the vegans are hoping to wipe entire species off the face of the planet...nice!”

“Not only do you blindly miss his point, but everything he said is completely true. I am a woman and a photo editor, and you wouldn't believe the work that is done to literally EVERY image that you see. With the downturn in the market people from the production dept without any photo-editing experience are forced to take on more than they can handle bc art depts can't afford to pay someone trained in the field.

And to all those talking about this poor malnourished woman, I think that you have all missed the real story here, which is actually about copyright law. But more importantly, this woman could be a size 12 for all we know-she was photoshopped into oblivion by some photo editor and whats worse is that the art director actually let this go to print.

More than likely this woman is double the size shown here, we can see the remnants of her breasts, which obviously mean that she has some body fat, and judging by how completely disproportionate every part of her, it wasn't that easy to get her this way.

Lastly, to all of you out there saying you know someone who looks like this, no you don't. This woman would have no means to stand, let alone room for her vital organs in her 14 inch waist. so”

Roman Polanski, And The Making Of A Legend

Commented Oct 6, 2009 at 12:03:24 in Entertainment

“"Who would want to perform sexual acts on a crying, protesting, resisting woman?"

sadly, most men.Especially if they(the girl) are really young.Thanks for the thoughtful article.I am afraid more people in Hollywood began their careers this way and maybe that is why they empathize with Polanksi.Nothing else explains it.”

jackbutler5555 on Oct 11, 2009 at 19:42:47

“How do you know she was "crying, protesting, resisting?" Because she said she was? Or, because there are folks here who said she was? Or do you have evidence to back up what you said?”

Pilatunes on Oct 6, 2009 at 18:08:46

“Sorry humaneismyth I will not let that go unchallenged. To me, the most harrowing moments of any movie, or in the pages of a newspaper, are those depicting/describing the suffering of children (and animals, for the record). I am not trying to sound heroic here, I would gladly place myself in grave peril to protect a 'crying, protesting, resisting woman'. And I'd bet my soul that my male friends would do the same. Most men I know have a highly visceral response to those situations, usually involving violence directed at the perpetrator, not the victim.”

“If you had a second chance to rewrite that posting, would you leave it unchanged? As they say, you have a responsibility to your 16 fans. They're feeling a little uneasy. They're trying to remember what you wrote in the past that impressed them so much.”

“jees
I am really sorry that your life has led you to feel that way. I certainly would want such a thing and whilst anyone can have dark secrets I find it very hard to know that most of the men I know would either.”

wizegeye on Oct 6, 2009 at 12:54:18

“Your comment is absolutely not true. Are most men attracted to beautiful young women? Yes, of course (I suggest that most women find handsome young men attractive too). Do most men want to "perform sexual acts on a crying, protesting, resisiting woman (i.e., rape)?" Absolutely not!! Remember, rape has little to do with sex and a lot to do with the desire to have power over another person. I have never in my life wanted to rape a woman and I think most men feel the same way. Most men are husbands, brothers, sons and fathers; and the thought of our wives, sisters, mothers and daughters being raped is sickening. Ms Carpentier has authored a thoughtful and insightful article, but it did not convey the message that all men are rapists. I don't see Mr Polanski as representative of me or most men, and I think most people understand this.”

“The more I think about what Whoopi said,the more distressed I get about this whole case.In the case of a 13 year old girl,plied with drugs and alcohol,there is no such thing as "not rape-rape". I wonder why so many women (and men) in Hollywood defend Polanksi to their own reputation's harm.Could it be that they not only sympathize with Polanksi,but..empathize?You figure that out.”

“I agree that alcohol does not help depression.But some people start drinking after years of depression and not getting enough results from exercise-especially when depression makes it hard to get out and exercise in the first place.So it isn't always that depressed people are just alcoholics who need to stop being selfish.Some became alcoholics because the help they needed was lacking.”

“Polanski is no genius..no "film maker" deserves the title of genius,in my opinion.Even if he actually were a genius,it would not excuse him in the least.I am bewildered by Hollywood's reaction to this ,and wonder what on earth is really going on that we are being distracted by the abhorrent behaviour of people I once assumed would be the first to fight for justice not this travesty.”

Principaldad on Oct 1, 2009 at 11:29:18

“There are genius filmmakers (Hitchcock for example).

Polanski can rightly be called a genius (Frantic is every bit as good as a Hitchcock suspense thriller).

You are correct, that does not excuse him in the least. I too am bewilded by the reaction by so many in Hollywood.”

“Romoving the "polanski" factor... yes humaneismyth there are geniuses in the film profession. That includes the technical areas as in Cinematography, Art Direction, Lighting etc. Your comment is silly. Never should genius be used as an escape from justice.
