A Most Curious Extradition
The Swiss arrest of Roman Polanski on his outstanding California sex charge is most curious. Why now, after 32 years? Presumably Polanski, who's been living in France all this time, has been to Switzerland many times before this. I'm not saying that Polanski deserves to get a pass on his bad behavior. But there are far bigger scoundrels and criminals loose in the world (hello Dick! Donald! Wolfie!).
So I'm suspicious. And wondering what the international politics of this are. Perhaps the Swiss are suddenly going all law-and-order on things related to the U.S. because of the recent UBS investigations.
