“right, and the truth is Woody gets woodies with young girls. His marriage was barely legal and wholly inappropriate on every level.”

Anna1755 on Feb 3, 2014 at 11:09:46

“Exactly. Just because Woody has a penis, big glasses, and happens to be Jewish does not mean he should not be given the benefit of the doubt. Imagine if the charges have been false all along, and that Mia used Dylan to hurt WA?”

“Indeed. We can't know. All we know is that the allegations weren't proved in court -- they didn't make it there. And from what I've read (exactly), investigators believed that Dylan Farrow was coached at the time.

But I still wonder why the Farrows aren't talking about justice, legal reforms... or protecting others (Allen's adopted daughters with Soon Yi Previn?) from Allen.

Lawyer Ronan Farrow's tweet, the open letter and Nick Kristof's column all talk about how Dylan (and all survivors of abuse) are further damaged by Allen getting awards and recognition for his films.

Surely, there's a better opportunity for education and betterment of victims than a piece saying little more than Allen shouldn't have won a Golden Globe for Lifetime Achievement.

If Dylan Farrow believes this happened and is ready to talk about it (and bravely help other victims of abuse) -- then police should be investigating.”

“Nobody here (the Internet) knows -- it's all speculation. If Farrow believes this happened, then there should be another police investigation. Adult victims of childhood abuse do press charges, even decades later.

It's troubling that the Farrows (and family friend Kristof) aren't calling for justice, criminal charges or to keep Allen from abusing others (including his two adopted daughters with his wife) -- they're complaining that Allen is being honoured by his peers and is winning awards after the family told their story in Vanity Fair.”

“Stand up for what? Allegations that weren't pursued by authorities 20+ years ago? If Ms. Farrow believes she was molested by Allen, then police should be brought back in (unless there's some bizarre statute of limitations I'm not aware of). If he did this, than he should be charged and the accusations be proven in court. Not on the Internet.”

Watersisland on Feb 2, 2014 at 19:41:30

“Yes, there are statutes of limitations. What do you find so 'bizarre' about that? While it differs in all states....most put a time limit of a few years after the age of majority or five years after the child is able to remember it. Those days are long gone.”

“How the heck was this woman pushing her sexual behaviour down anyone's throat? What the heck does sex have to do with having a short haircut? What does sex have to do with any of this? Apparently I missed the part where it says the waitress was sexually propositioning this entire family.

I don't think, from the article anyway that this woman's complaining just because she didn't get a tip -- that happens all the time -- but a stranger didn't just not leave a tip, he/she left an insulting, unnecessary and unkind note.

We don't even know from this story if this woman is gay. Even if she's not, it's just as unkind. And, well, that's what we all do -- if someone is unkind to us, we talk about it on the internet.”

“Has there ever been a decent look into these oft-referred-to horror stories about the Canadian health care system? The idea -- that Canadians are suffering and wish we had America's system -- seems to be widely believed. I've still seen no actual evidence of this.

Interesting point -- and this always gets deleted when i post it -- but the idea was popular in the states mid-century until a fortune was spent on marketing to scare people.”

Donna Furneaux on Nov 8, 2012 at 00:48:15

“Canadians aren't suffering. By and large we love our system. I've had a lot of contact with the system through my aged mother and now myself. It works better than anything the US has got. Our drug prices are cheaper too.”

“I wonder if U.S. term limits and set election dates spur interest -- the question, who's going to run/win the next election, will start being asked (in the news at least) the day after this one.

Plus, we don't have as much say as individuals, at least on the surface, on which person will run the country. We choose an MP. the decision of who the parties choose as leaders seems closed off from most Canadian, in practise at least. It seems Americans aren't particularly enthralled, arguably, either, by the majority leaders in the senate and in congress.”
