Slate Fail

And while we're talking about Polanski:

To Swiss bankers charged with helping Americans hide money overseas, Roman Polaniski has become a cautionary tale. The 76-year-old filmmaker was arrested last month on decades-old charges of having sex with an underage girl. The lesson here? Be careful where you travel.

Um, the lesson I'm taking from this is "don't get your morning news feed from Slate."

    I'm so, so sick of the rape=sex meme.

    It's almost as bad when they insist on calling it "statutory rape." As if it was concensual but she just wasnt old enough.
