– Lawyer Says Roman Polanski Is Feeling Depressed In Jail –
As a general rule, lawyers are irritating as hell. If they’re not busy trying to parse simple English into some unrecognizable formulation to suit whatever side they happen to be collecting money from, they’re issuing stupid statements on behalf of their clients who, in most cases, would be better served if their lawyers just kept quiet.
Which brings us to Roman Polanski’s lawyer. After visiting Polanski in jail, lawyer Herve Temime told reporters he found Polanski to be “tired and depressed” and that the director “seemed very dejected.”
Hey, I’ll bet that’s pretty much just how Polanski’s 13-year-old victim felt following her photo shoot turned sexual assault.
About the only thing I could care less about than Real Housewives of Orange County is how Roman Polanski feels while he’s sitting in a cell waiting for extradition.
One of the worst things about the 24-hour news cycle is the incredible amount of useless detritus that passes for news.
Who cares whether Roman Polanski is depressed, reflective, upbeat, somber or just pissed about the lousy prison food?
I don’t need to know what he wore today or how the last guy who gave him change at the supermarket interpreted his grocery list.
I saved up for three months to buy my new high-def, flat screen TV so I’d rather not be tempted to throw a shoe at it as I watch some self-anointed “legal expert” on CNN interpret whether Polanski is “tired and depressed” or whether he’s “tired because he’s depressed” or whether his lawyer was projecting Polanski was “depressed” because the lawyer was “tired” and … wait, this just in — we’ve located the childhood neighbor of Caylee’s mother’s third cousin who has the same kind of petunias in her garden as Casey Anthony’s grandfather.
Maybe Real Houswives isn’t so bad after all…
