Woody Did Something

w allenThere are some general principles that, when followed, lead one to indisputable conclusions. Woody Allen did something. Despite the denials, and the lack of a criminal case, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out who’s wrong. Keep your ears and eyes open and pay attention to your common sense and ask yourself if you’d let him babysit. Fame, and talent and good looks and riches make us all subject to persuasion, and equivocation but this writer doesn’t have to taste the crap in the roadway to proclaim it crap when it already looks like it, smells like it and contains cream corn. Plain and simple, OJ did it, Michael Jackson was no winner, Lizzie Borden can wash her hands all she wants, Whitney Houston, ¬†Philip Seymour Hoffman, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix were asking for it, and no child, woman or man deserves to have their life tainted or snuffed by another, regardless of circumstances. But the actuarial tables are going to continue these things to happen, and sycophants will continue to stand behind these losers as long as lucre or attention is forthcoming. The answer to dealing with these people is simple but somehow insufficiently satisfactory. We can’t hang em, without trial, and some of them can buy their way out of justice. And some of the crimes are not capital offences, though they certainly take away the life of the victim, ask Jaycee Dugard. Best we can do is to never watch an episode of Hardcore Pawn again, forget all about visiting Arizona for anything but the scenery and not spend a nickel on that whiny myopic actor/director’s movies ever again. Again, less than satisfactory, but sometimes life ain’t fair.
