Agreeing with a Republican

Arnold Schwarzenegger intones that Roman Polanski should be treated like everyone else. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he means that Polanski should be accorded every privilege of convicted statutory rapists.

That is the minimum that our Constitution requires. The odd thing is that the core American principle of equal justice needs to be stated by politicians. Odd also is that it's news.

Or am I just another naive refugee from sentimental Arthurian musicals?
